We Preach Christ Crucified

Sermons of Gerhard O. Forde

Marianna Forde, editor

Gerhard O. Forde wrote and taught powerfully about the primary importance of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. In an article in the Lutheran Quarterly, he wrote:

Let us be . . . radical preachers and practitioners of the gospel by justification by faith without the deeds of the law. . . . What is at stake is the radical gospel, radical grace, the eschatological nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified and risen.

So it is no surprise that his sermons carry the power of this Christ-centered message:

The Lord whom we worship and proclaim in the Christian church is one who comes to us in such a way that we do not need to go to him. Indeed, it must be put even more sharply. It is not merely that we do not need to go to him, it is rather that we cannot go to him; it is no longer even an option. He is the one who comes to you, in his own way; there is nothing you can do about it. . . . That is precisely the glory of it, the gospel of it. Ibr>
The sermons in this book were prepared for congregational worship and seminary chapel services. They accompany scripture readings throughout the church year. They encourage, they reprove, they explicate tenets of the faith, they focus the biblical story. And without exception they point to the loving God who comes to us in Jesus Christ, that great good news of Godís grace.
