    1 thought on “Spirit Empowered Preaching: Involve the Holy Spirit in Your Ministry

    1. Azurdia gives us a biblical theology of Spirit empowered preaching. It is both incredibly insightful and piercingly convicting. Every preacher ought to read this book. Every congregation ought to read this book. Then, after you read it once, read it again!

    2. Highlights:The Greater WorksIn John 14:12 Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” Azurdia observes that a “common interpretation [of Jesus’ statement] is to define this as a promise to the disciples that they will perform greater miracles than those performed by Jesus” (22). And by extension, this direction of interpretation is often applied to believers [...]

    3. Excellent. Convicting and encouraging for preachers and yet in many ways applicable to the whole of the Christian life.

    4. “Bible study without prayer is atheism.” A book full of reminders that preaching is a supernatural act requiring the Holy Ghost. Solid.

    5. Azurdia's "Spirit Empowered Preaching" is a profoundly helpful book for those called to preach the Word to God's people. It is refreshing that this is a contemporary work with much wisdom, as well as rebukes for much of our modern evangelical folly. We cannot expect God to work mightily if we are not faithful to obey His command to "preach Christ". This is foolishness to the world.Further, while many want to replace preaching in the church with motivational speeches, dialogues, debates, rock 'n [...]

    6. Just finished my second time through this marvelous, inspiring text on the necessity of the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit before, during, and after the delivery of the sermon. Dr. Azurdia addresses this issue from the perspective of the preacher (seeing that he prays, studies well, and is accepting of the rigors and inadequacies that are inevitable with a biblical preaching ministry) AND the role of the congregation (praying specifically for the preacher and the effectiveness of the ser [...]

    7. I give five stars to two types of books; those that are just good in and of themselves, like Hamlet or Lord of the Rings, and those that greatly effect my life. This book falls into the latter category. I have been thinking and preaching on prayer lately. This book was perfect to round out my thinking on prayer and the relationship of the Spirit to preaching. The section on the weakness of the preacher was convicting. At times the author verged towards a revivalistic view of the Spirit's view in [...]

    8. Art Azurdia's DMin dissertation summarizes his approach to preaching. In my humble opinion, Art Azurdia is one of the finest preachers in all of the world, a craftsman with words, who also understands the role of a Christocentric hermeneutic and biblical theology. But as committed as Art is to preaching the biblical text, this book emphasizes the absolute necessity of the working of the Holy Spirit. Art's exegesis is accurate and his arguments are compelling. If every preacher would read this bo [...]

    9. I bought this at a conference Azurida was the main speaker at. I will have to read it again to glean all the deep truths he conveyed. Many people won't touch the subject of the Holy Spirit but he does so with confidence. A must read to anybody behind the pulpit and also for anybody listening from the pew.

    10. Good book. It is worth reading. I appreciated the words on the weakness of the preacher and his need for and dependence upon prayer and holiness. As I read I couldn't help but see the correlations between the preaching role and the fathering role. This book applies equally to those who teach in congregations and in the home. We desperately need the ministry of the Spirit in both.

    11. Great read - should have read it years ago when I purchased it. Excellent exhortation on subject matter that is all too often ignored. A must read for all preachers and will be a book that I regularly re-read.

    12. Helpful book in recovering/realizing the role of the Spirit in preaching. A bit idealistic (but what homiletical books aren't?). Certainly opens one's eyes to the need of grace in the pulpit.

    13. The Spirit must empower the preacher of the word or his message will have no eternal significance. Great book!
