Ha! Ha! Among the Trumpets
The book Ha! Ha! Among The Trumpets: Sermons by Martin Franzmann is a compilation of fifteen sermons preached by Franzmann at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis. The encouragement from God’s Word and examples of preaching in the book make it a treasure for any preacher.
This is the third in a series of sermons Lindemann analyzes for examples of focused law and focused gospel preaching.
What Is Focused Law and Gospel?
Focused law preaching aims at a particular point. It specifies a particular sin from the text that finds its ultimate destiny in the First Commandment. Such focused law preaching allows no listener to escape the curse of the law.
