Old, a pastor and member of the Center of Theological Inquiry at Princeton, originally began writing a book on ''preaching as worship,'' and it has now expanded into a multi-volume history of the role of preaching in the Scriptures, from Moses to the present day. This second volume covers the Patristic Age, Greek, Syriac, and Latin. Dividing preaching into various genres -- expository, evangelistic, catechetical, festal, and prophetic -- Old then proceeds to lay this grid over the great ages and cultures of preaching within Christendom, to reveal the many-faceted splendor of the Church's obedience to the injunction, ''Go into all the world and preach the gospel.'
