Within the pages of Legends of the Pulpit ($24.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-529-3; $9.99, eBook, 978-1-61379-674-0), a new book from Xulon Press, author B. J. Hartman brings together stories and anecdotes of 31 influential biblical preachers over the past 1500 years, all of whom are identified with the Christian tradition. The biographies of these great men of God will be explored in detail in a narrative that overflows with spiritual inspiration.
“Readers will gain an appreciation for the influence that biblical preaching can have on the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds,” the author says. “This is the only book on the market that includes the lives of so many biblical preachers from so many time periods and Christian denominations.”
Since his ordination more than 30 years ago, Hartman has studied the lives and sermons of many biblical preachers. The group collected in his book represents only a portion of a much larger group whose lives and sermons he has studied. “I selected those Christian biblical preachers who were preachers who had influence beyond their own base of ministry and who left behind something to remind us that they were powerful preachers of God’s Word,” he explains. “The presence of a preacher in this book doesn’t mean that I or the publisher agrees completely with his theological views, and the absence of a preacher doesn’t mean that he didn’t qualify.”
B. J. Hartman lives with his wife, Claire, and their dog, Crown Prince Mischa Bichon, in Mission Viejo, California.
