Preaching Book Review:

"Through this book, Craddock has, for a quarter century, been teaching countless students to preach lively, substantive, and faithful sermons. Preaching will... take its place, alongside the texts of Augustine, Fenelon, Broadus, Luccock, and others, as benchmark examples of the best wisdom in the treasury of homiletics."---Thomas G. Long, from the Foreword This groundbreaking volume has guided generations of students and pastors through the daunting challenge of learning to preach. Fred Craddock weaves history, theology, and hermeneutics into a practical, comprehensive, and contemporary text on how to prepare and deliver the sermon. Painstakingly prepared for seminary students and clergy, Preaching answers the fundamental question, How does one speak a word from God? This format provides an intelligible guide to sermon preparation and allows for concentrated study of all the particular dimensions of the homiletical process. "Fred Craddock's is a book filled with practical wisdom. It is free of the older homiletical prescriptions that too often confined the preacher's creativity. In place of rules, Craddock invites his readers to participate with him in the whole cycle of the preparation and delivery of sermons, and to do so in such a way that readers supplement the author's ideas with their own experiences and insights. Best of all, the book is free of jargon and the technical language of homiletics and theology. Preaching is a liberating book."---Richard Lischer, Duke University Divinity School

Preaching That Changes Lives Book Review:

Beyond the what and how of preaching is the all-important why of preaching. Mike Fabarez contends persuasively that unless a sermon makes a difference in the lives of its hearers, the preacher and the congregation have missed the point. No matter how much information is communicated, unless application is central throughout the message, the sermon has failed to be biblical. In fifteen brief chapters, the author demonstrates how the goal of changing lives can permeate the planning, preparation, presentation, and pastoral follow-through of every sermon. And in the process, the preacher's life will be changed, too. Here is a book that is accessible, brief, highly practical, and ultimately life-changing. It includes: -a Prayer Guide for Preaching -a Sample Message Prep Prayer Team Schedule -a Preaching Evaluation form

Preaching Prophetic Care Book Review:

Preachers often think of prophetic preaching in the caricature of the prophet as the lonely outsider confronting the congregation, often angrily, with the congregation’s complicity in social injustice and with a bracing call for repentance. The twenty-seven essays and sermons in this book offer a different perspective by viewing prophetic preaching specifically—and ministry, practical theology, and theological education more broadly—as pastoral care for the community in prophetic perspective. Such preaching does indeed bring a critical theological analysis of justice concerns to the center of the sermon, but in such a way as to invite the congregation to consider how the move toward justice is a pastoral move— that is, a move that seeks to build up community. Rather than contributing to the polarization so rampant in today’s social world, the preacher seeks to help the congregation build bridges along which concern for justice can travel. The contributions honor the work of the late Dale Andrews, a scholar of preaching and practical theology at the Divinity School, Vanderbilt University, whose seminal work inspires the notions of prophetic care and building bridges to justice.

On Preaching Book Review:

Preaching Magazine's 2015 Book of the Year If you are a pastor, you know the importance of preaching.

Charles offers a practical resource for pastors, seminarians, church planters, and Bible teachers that is full of energy and wonderfully enjoyable.

It helps your listeners see in or out." Written in a very clear and concise manner, this resource is formatted into 30 short chapters that can easily be read as a devotional.

The Glory of Preaching Book Review:

In these pages you will find a vision of preaching that is both illuminating and inspiring. Drawing from biblical and theological resources as well as years in the pulpit, Darrell Johnson takes us far beyond the mere mechanics of delivering sermons. He dynamically unpacks the link between the human task of speaking to a congregation and the real, gracious action and presence of the living Christ in and through our proclamation. Johnson assists preachers to profoundly engage the biblical text and then liberates them to make use of their own personality, gifts and abilities as they communicate that message. This book is for any pastor or student who wants to cultivate a deeper pulpit approach, one that participates in the transforming mystery of God working through our less-than-perfect proclamation. Here is a solid foundation for preaching the good news as if God was living, Jesus was resurrected and the Holy Spirit was faithfully at work among us.

In this lively and accessible book, Alyce McKenzie explores how fiction writers approach the task of writing novels: how they develop their ideas, where they find their inspiration, and how they turn the spark of a creative notion into words on paper that will captivate the masses. McKenzie's study shows how preachers can use the same techniques to enhance their own creativity and to turn their ideas into powerful, well crafted sermons. Novel Preaching offers a wealth of advice from successful fiction writers, including Isabelle Allende, Frederick Buechner, Julia Cameron, Annie Dillard, Natalie Goldberg, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, and Melanie Rae Thorn, and also includes a number of sample sermons from McKenzie herself.

Preachings most able practitioners gather in this book to explore and explain the idea that preaching is a practice that can be taught and learned. Arguing that preaching is a living practice with a long tradition, an identifiable shape, and a broad set of norms and desired outcomes, these noted scholars propose that teachers initiate students into the larger practice of preaching, in ways somewhat like other students are initiated into the practice of medicine or law. The book concludes with designs for a basic preaching course and addresses the question of how preaching courses fit into the larger patterns of seminary curricula.
