In this collection of sermons Elizabeth Achtemeier shows that even the hard texts of the Old Testament can produce significant and profound preaching.""4/5(3). All biblical texts are fair game for preaching. But you’d never know it. It almost seems like some ogre once promulgated an unwritten decree that certain texts are off limits for preaching.

Naturally, most of them are Old Testament texts. The Old Testament is full of violent accounts that seem contradictory to the idea of the merciful, compassionate God of the New Testament: Joshua exterminates the tribes living in the Promised land, Samuel hacks the helpless Agag to pieces, and God orders Saul to kill every living thing when he conquers the Amelikites, to name but a few.

The key to interpreting these texts is the figure. Wondrous Depth: Preaching the Old Testament shows how to let Old Testament texts astonish you so you can preach them well.

First, because (if my own assessment is correct) many sermons from the Gospels —where the focus is explicitly on the person of Jesus—never mind from the Old Testament are far from Christ-centred. Paul wrote with wisdom “given to him” — and Peter means wisdom given by God (as 1 Corinthians says).
