Jay Adams shows an awareness for the authority of the preacher, and yet that his priority is not to preach himself: 'In the pulpit the herald represents God, not himself. The Puritan James Durham's definition still stands: 'Application is the life of preaching, and there is no less study, skill, wisdom, authority and plainness necessary in the applying of a point to the conscience of hearers, and in the pressing of it home, than is it required in the opening of some profound truth.

Jay Adams shows an awareness for the authority of the preacher, and yet that his priority is not to preach himself: 'In the pulpit the herald represents God, not himself. He will always be tempted to abuse rather than use his authority, and he must carefully guard against doing so. But in spite of the temptation, he may not shirk his responsibility to use authority properly.' p 28 Before a word may be spoken on our Sovereign's behalf, the minister is cautioned: 'The preacher must be sure he does not contribute to this weakening of church authority by assuming some position lower than that of the herald. We will never restore biblical care and discipline to Christ's church until we establish respect for preaching.' pp. 29-30 This establishes preaching as an act of God, according to hard-won Reformation principles gained against both prelacy and private interpretation.

The Puritan James Durham's definition still stands: 'Application is the life of preaching, and there is no less study, skill, wisdom, authority and plainness necessary in the applying of a point to the conscience of hearers, and in the pressing of it home, than is it required in the opening of some profound truth.'

Adams imparts more can be done toward applying the truths of the gospel to the hearts and lives of people under the preacher's care, especially as the gospel proclamation becomes more focused on the cross as the applicatory framework: 'Application brings Christ into the center of a message as the One who makes the difference in life.' p 41 Dr Adams enlists the aid of the analogy of dressing a wound: 'Everything in the sermon contributes to a unified purpose, so that, like pressure applied to a wound, the sermon makes forceful contact that achieves its purpose...the truths of a passage are not merely expounded; they are so expounded (applied) as to effect change in the listener.' p 42 The Word-prominence of the Reformation is required to tune-in to local congregations and modern times, resulting in preachers who so 'apply truth to the congregation that the people can no longer be the same for having heard it. They will change - for good or for ill as God's Word accomplishes the sovereign purposes for which it went forth (2 Cor 2:15-16).' p 43

Just how the Holy Spirit is active in proclamation, Adams helpfully enlightens: 'The Bible indiscriminately attributes the same acts to the Holy Spirit, the Scriptures, and the minister of the Word in such a way that the only conclusion one can reach is that the Holy Spirit enables the preacher to perform those acts by means of the Scripture.' p 57, n 1 This brings the preacher face-to-face with the enormity of the task set upon him: 'He [the Holy Spirit] continues to work today through that Word as it is preached.' p 57 After making many equally important considerations, uncovered with biblical care, Adams identifies the need for mature preachers who are able to extend their knowledge in two directions: 'He must learn all he can about the original recipients of the message and the occasion that gave rise to the message. He must know as fully as possible the congregation (the contemporary recipients) to which he preaches.' p 133

Helpfully surveying the full field of homiletical applicatory formats, introductions, outlines, conclusions and the more, he then provides the how-to of the deductive/inductive applicatory sermon, which exhibits his wide knowledge considerably. Even though the debate continues, here Jay Adams presents a biblical view, one found to have more than its fair share of conviction.

In Truth Applied, Dr. Jay E. Adams takes the reader through the principles outlined in Scripture for applying truth to life. The author contends that too often preaching has become dry and useless to the listener, and gives the impression that the Bible has no place in daily living. Here Dr. Adams takes the preacher to Biblical principles for applying the Scriptures to the hearts and lives of believers in the Church. If your preaching has become dry or application is a struggle for you as you preach, this book needs to be a part of your library.
