“Old” Preaching

Derek Thomas has reviewed the sixth volume of Hughes Oliphant Old’s The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church.Old’s series is a goldmine for those wishing to explore the history of the Word preached. He starts with the biblical period of the OT and works to the present in a systematic and exhaustive fashion. In any work like this there will be gaps and oversights, which Thomas takes note of, but there is not another work that comes close to Old’s magnum opus.
