People in the pews hunger for relevance, and in his book What Does the Lord Require? A Guide for Preaching and Teaching Biblical Ethics (Baker Academic), Walter Kaiser shows how we can effectively apply God’s Word to a host of pressing ethical issues. Among the topics he covers: racism, gambling, sexual misconduct, homosexuality, suicide, war and peace, and much more. The resources provided could launch a powerful sermon series about how God’s Word addresses contemporary issues.
What Does The Lord Require? by James L. Killen is a collection of devotion sermons/meditations on how one lives out his or her Christian faith in the midst of the contentious moral and social issues that characterize contemporary life.
