In the new book Enduring Truth: Restoring Sound Theology & Relevance to African American Preaching (B&H Academic), pastor and professor Aaron Lavender describes the crisis in the Black church resulting from an erosion of biblical preaching, and offers a case for expository preaching in African American congregations. Among the topics he addresses are the role of exegesis in preaching, a theology of preaching, and issues relating to preaching in a postmodern culture. While addressed to African American pastors, Lavender’s insights will be relevant to any church leader seeking to restore power to the local church.
