This magisterial volume is the seventh and last of Hughes Oliphant Old's history of preaching. Here Old takes up the story with the sixties and the Second Vatican Council and follows it all the way through to the house churches of China and the preaching of the Archbishop of Uganda, known as the -Billy Graham of Africa.- Along the way he looks at the engaging preaching found in Latin America, the rise of the modern megachurch, the role of Joan Alexandru's preaching in bringing down the house of Ceausescu, and other historically significant moments in preaching. / Full of surprising details and inspiring stories of ministry, this book is a fitting work to round out Old's monumental, comprehensive series written by a preacher for preachers on the history of preaching in the Christian church.

Review:

The Ordained Servant
"A priceless gift to the church and its preachers. . . . Astonishing in its scope, mind-expanding in its perspective, and highly motivating."

Ordained Servant
"An excellent book. . . . Pastors needing an aid responding to the kind of objections to Christian belief permeating the modern-day intelligentsia would do well to turn to this resource."

Philip Ryken
Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
"With this expansive volume, Hughes Oliphant Old brings his massive global history of Christian preaching to an inspiring close.Our Own Timeis remarkable for its geographical and theological breadth, spanning five continents and showing generous personal appreciation for an amazing range of twentieth- and twenty-first-century preachers. The great strength of Old's approach is the direct exposure he gives to the original texts of actual sermons. Anyone who loves biblical exposition will be encouraged by the vitality of contemporary homiletics and will gain an expanded understanding of the preaching of the church worldwide."

Kurt Iver Johanson
Pleasant Grove Christian Church, Dallas
"From the first day in September 1985 when Hughes Oliphant Old picked up his pen to compose the opening lines of this series until the final day nearly twenty-five years later when the time came for him to set it down, he has presented to the church a monumental study of the history of preaching as worship. . . Here is sound scholarship coupled with a profound pastoral sensitivity and love of preaching.""
