Designed to help preachers engage in a disciplined and deliberate study of biblical materials, the central premise of Living Water for Thirsty Souls is that preaching should be grounded and centered in the truths and lessons of the Bible. To achieve this goal, author Marvin McMickle has formulated an approach to biblical exegesis for preaching that is easy for students to learn and useful for pastors to employ long after their student days are done. This eight-step approach covers the eight Ls:
• Limits• Literature• Language• Location• Links• Leads• Lessons• Life application
It is an approach that clearly reflects the traditional methodology for doing biblical exegesis. These teaching tools are guaranteed to take the preacher through the transition from text to sermon, resulting in a rich harvest of preaching material.
One of the most respected preachers in the nation, Marvin A. McMickle, DMin, PhD, served as pastor of Antioch Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio for nearly twenty-five years before becoming president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, New York in January 2012. No stranger to academia, McMickle previously served as professor of homiletics at Ashland Theological Seminary and in 2009, spent a semester as a visiting professor at Yale University Divinity School. He also taught at Case Western Reserve, Cleveland State, Princeton and Fordham universities.
A prolific author, McMickle has more than a dozen books to his credit, including resources on preaching, ministry, and African American history.
