Owen Palmer Robertson is a well-known Christian theologian and biblical scholar. He currently serves as principal of the Uganda campus of African Bible University and previously taught at Reformed Theological Seminary, Westminster Theological Seminary, Covenant Theological Seminary, and Knox Theological Seminary. He is also the author of The Christ of the Covenants.
"More than ever the Christian church needs a new generation of men committed to the urgent necessity of preaching God’s word and who are gifted themselves to preach that word. This is easier said than done. Paul’s command to Timothy to ‘preach the word, in good times and in bad times’ (2 Timothy 4:2), inevitably raises the question, ‘How is this to be done?’
With his latest book, O Palmer Robertson has provided the church with a timely, detailed, engaging, relevant and convicting exposition of what it means to ‘preach the word’. Preaching Made Practical is a must read for any man seriously considering the Christian ministry. Churches and Seminaries will want to ensure that their young men read and digest its practical and deeply spiritual wisdom'." - From the Foreword by Rev. Dr. Ian Hamilton, Pastor, Cambridge Presbyterian Church, Cambridge, England
