The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church is a multivolume study by Hughes Oliphant Old that canvasses the history of preaching from the words of Moses at Mount Sinai through modern times. In Volume 1, The Biblical Period, Old begins his survey by discussing the roots of the Christian ministry of the Word in the worship of Israel. He then examines the preaching of Christ and the Apostles. Finally, Old looks at the development and practice of Christian preaching in the second and third centuries, concluding with the ministry of Origen.

"One of the most ambitious writing projects ever undertaken by one person Old has much to teach us." — Sewanee Theological Review

"There is no doubt that every serious preacher, theologian and Christian thinker will have to buy and ponder these important volumes. Dr. Old has done the church an enormous service in bringing this aspect of our heritage back into the prominence which it deserves, and it can only be hoped that his message will be widely heard and heeded in the days ahead." — Churchman

"Here is a book that Augustine of Hippo would have loved because it links the pastoral ministry of preaching with its liturgical context of praise and thanks. Old writes not only from an extensive experience in the ministry of preaching but also with impeccable scholarly credentials…. Old has achieved something exceptional in this first volume. As a gifted teacher, he reviews familiar material and makes it new again by his studied insights and his ministerial concerns. His writing is both clear and elegant. Above all, he renews our own commitment to the preached and celebrated Word by his own vigorous reading of its ministry. Both pastors and scholars will benefit from a similar reading of his account." — Princeton Seminary Bulletin
