From Gospel to Sermon:
Preaching Synoptic Texts
  —by David J. Ourisman

“a new method for crafting sermons from the
overly familiar texts of the synoptic gospels”


For Preachers...

From Gospel to Sermon offers a new method for preaching biblical sermons based on narrative readings of the synoptic gospels. Three sample sermons are included.

For students of the New Testament...

From Gospel to Sermon offers the first side-by-side-by-side narrative study of Peter’s Confession in Matthew, Mark, and Luke-Acts ever published.


Book Description

In this insightful study, Ourisman propounds a new method for crafting sermons from the overly familiar texts of the synoptic gospels, using a narrative approach. Beginning with a step-by-step practice on learning to read the particular emphasis of each of the synoptic gospels, he develops a method for preachers to read those gospels in their diversity and to craft sermons that appropriate their distinctive narrative worlds. While encouraging and teaching us to consider them "stories-of-the-whole," David Ourisman offers a fresh reading of the synoptic gospels.

Selected Bibliography




“While encouraging us and teaching us to consider them ‘stories-of-the-whole,’ David Ourisman offers a fresh reading of the synoptic gospels. His literary insights challenge us to read more carefully, his homiletical queries ask for proclamations with theological depth, and his sermons provide moments of devotion. Those who preach the synoptics frequently will find in Ourisman an interesting and stimulating study partner.”
