What's Right with Preaching Today?

In 1928, when Riverside Church (NYC) pastor Harry Emerson Fosdick asked the question in Harpers Magazine, “What’s the Matter with Preaching Today?” he did not know that one response to that question had just entered the world in Humboldt, Tennessee. Fred B. Craddock revolutionized preaching theory and practice by flipping pulpit logic from deductive to inductive—often called the preaching-as-storytelling revolution—and in so doing brought renewed interest and impact to the practice of preaching, effectively rescuing it from an often tedious and moralizing fate. With Fred, preaching was anything but boring. Rather, it was an exciting and enlightening ride that led to the renewal of faith. To honor Craddock’s legacy, Mike Graves and André Resner invited ten leading voices in homiletics to identify something that is right about preaching today. In addition, they issued a call to a wide variety of people to contribute stories about Fred’s impact on their lives and ministries. Twenty-seven remembrances of Fred are included here throughout the book. If you appreciate effective and engaging preaching—as either a preacher or listener—the essays and remembrances here will speak to you and provide encouragement about preaching’s present and future.

The Preacher as Liturgical Artist
Language: en
Pages: 220
Authors: Trygve David Johnson
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-01-24 - Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

Trygve Johnson invites us to consider a new metaphor of identity of The Preacher as Liturgical Artist. This identity draws on a theology of communion and the doctrine of the vicarious humanity of Christ to relocate the preacher's identity in the creative and ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ. Johnson argues the metaphorical association of the preacher and artist understood within the artistic ministry of Jesus Christ frees the full range of human capacities, including the imagination to bear upon the arts of Christian proclamation. The Preacher as Liturgical Artist connects preachers to the person and work of Jesus Christ, whose own double ministry took the raw materials of the human condition and offered them back to the Father in a redemptive and imaginative fashion through the Holy Spirit. It is in the large creative ministry of Jesus Christ that preachers find their creativity freed to proclaim the gospel bodily within the context of the liturgical work of God's people.

A Sinner was a 33 year old ordinary English working class man, content and happy with his family life. One day he curiously attends a Christian Fellowship in a local community centre. After many visits and much thought he eventually accepts Christ as his personal saviour. Two years later he finds he is given a preaching commitment. Here is his ‘lay’ preachers notes of some 20 years, biblical expositions with historical and contemporary commentaries. It is a warts and all record, not only of serous scriptural sermons but also on church and personal life experiences some humorous some tragic. He is critical of much of ‘established religion’ and the fact he reluctantly uses a pen name tells of his fears of the changing face of his country and shows his belief that much of its freedoms for Christians and free speech in general has been and is being lost. He holds no theological exams or college training and does not qualify for what he describes as the ‘hindrance’ of a dog collar, but believes in Gods Holy Spirit that has and does convict man if mans heart is willing to be open to Him. So are any or any part of these words Gods word? That’s for you with the Holy Spirit to decide.

What is the role of preaching in the "double feast" churches -- churches whose normative liturgical worship features rites at the two tables of the Word and of the Eucharist? Father Michael Monshau adds timely and critical new perspective to the issue by bringing together five significant voices from "double feast" churches whose presentations, in effect, become varied, short textbooks on how to preach.

The Third Room of Preaching

Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-02-09 - Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

How do listeners create meaning when hearing a sermon? In this cutting-edge homiletical study, Marianne Gaarden draws on sociological, psychological, and other empirical research to offer new perspectives and presents the notion of the Third Room of Preaching, the place where the preacher's words and the listener's prior experiences come together and new meaning emerges. The new research insights challenge conventional understandings of preaching and invite homileticians to reflect theologically on the implications for the sermon as an act of communication. In addition, the book includes an appendix that offers new perspectives on how to best educate and train preachers in light of that research.
Finding Language and Imagery

Authors: Jennifer L. Lord

Type: BOOK - Published: 2009-11-01 - Publisher: Fortress Press

Sermons use words. And though it may seem obvious that preachers should be careful and exacting in word choice, preachers often set aside this aspect of preaching in favor of exegesis, form, and sermonic focus, and make such language work a secondary task. In Finding Language and Imagery, Jennifer L. Lord asserts that, because language shapes faith, preachers must be disciplined to find fresh words for sermons and to make good choices about both their own words and those borrowed from others. By presenting key tools and terms, along with writing, exercises, Lord helps users develop both their understanding of language and their skills to capture the religious imagination of their listeners.

Preaching Must Die!

Pages: 240
Authors: Jacob D. Myers
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2017-11-15 - Publisher: Fortress Press

The real question for homiletics in our increasingly postmodern, post-Christian contexts is not how are we going to prevent preaching from dying, but how are we going to help it die a good death. Preaching was not made to live. At most, preaching is a witness, a sign, a crimson X marking a demolition site. The church has developed sophisticated technologies in modernity to give preaching the semblance of life, belying the truth: preaching was born under a death sentence. It was born to die. Only when preaching embraces its own death is it able to truly live.
The Preacher's Guide to Suicide
Language: en
Pages: 210
Authors: H. C. Johnson
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2022-03-18 - Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

This book makes the startling claim that the pulpit is the appropriate place to address suicide. In A Preacher’s Guide to Suicide Johnson chisels through the rusty prison bars of cultural pretense and the oppressive myths of suicide. Using history, the social and behavioral sciences, and biblical inquiry over the centuries of varied Christian voices, Johnson demonstrates that suicide is part of the very fabric of Christian identity. And to preach suicide awareness is to preach life into the very act of dying. While grappling with the contemporary understanding of neuroscience, psychopathology, societal values, and individualism, Johnson seeks to present suicide in a hopeful light as we all approach death in those daily moments of confession, forgiveness, and prayer. Johnson hopes to provoke further conversation within the Christian community about the richness of suicide within the Scriptures and seeks to be a source of inspiration for preachers.
