Today, traditional forms of preaching are being scrutinized and challenged. The biblical sermon is not immune to the pressure to evolve or even fall by the wayside, leaving pastors and seminary students confused over how best to communicate to todays listeners. In this forward-looking textbook, Kenton Anderson delivers a strong call to current and future ministers to indeed choose to preach biblical sermons, despite the obstacles to doing so. While preaching itself is non-negotiable, the exact form it takes can be much more flexible, allowing people to hear from God as they hear his Word preached. Rather than presenting one model or process for preparing a sermon, Anderson explains several available options. As you discern your message from the Bible, will you begin with the text (deductive) or with the listener (inductive)? Will you focus on the idea (cognitive) or the image (affective)? The choices you make lead to five possible sermon structures: DECLARATIVEmake an argument PRAGMATICsolve a mystery NARRATIVEtell a story VISIONARYpaint a picture INTEGRATIVEsing a song Each model is described in detail and related to well-known contemporary preachers, including John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Eugene Lowry, and Rob Bell. This book equips you with a variety of tools for your preaching tool kit.
Shaun Wick5 Stars Out Of 5January 18, 2007Shaun WickDr. Anderson offers a fantastic tool for anyone who finds themselves in a preaching role. This book will give the reader a better understanding of the various forms of preaching, and will help the reader develop an integrative approach in sharing the Word of God. Choosing to Preach is very well written, is theologically solid, and helps the reader gain confidence in their preaching. I highly recommend this book!
