Publisher's Description

Preaching magazine’s 2008 Book of the Year! The theme of doctrinal preaching and teaching comes to life through the enthusiastic and inspired writing of professor Robert Smith in Doctrine That Dances.
 
Advance Praise:
 
“At a time when so much of the conversation on preaching deals with presentation, Robert Smith has reminded us that effective teaching must also take the theological task seriously. He makes his case so well that his book, Doctrine that Dances, is our Preaching Book of the Year.”
 
Michael Duduit, editor, Preaching magazine

"Away with dull doctrinal sermons! Using the metaphor of music, the author shows us how to blend cogitation and celebration—mind and heart—in our preaching of Bible doctrine. You can benefit from his wide knowledge and experience in traditional western homiletics as well as African American preaching. We have much to learn from each other, and this book is a valuable contribution to the current conversation."
 
Warren W. Wiersbe, former pastor of Moody Church, general director of Back to the Bible, and coauthor of Preaching in Black & White

“A masterful preacher and teacher himself, Smith provides direction for students, young pastors and veteran preachers alike. Pulpits across the land will be strengthened as preachers implement the guidance offered in this volume. Doctrine That Dances will become mandatory reading for a new generation of preachers. It is a joy to recommend this marvelous work.”

David Dockery, president, Union University
“Dr. Robert Smith, Jr. is one of the most compelling voices in American preaching today . . . Doctrine That Dances describes the preacher’s task in a way that is at once personal, passionate, and provocative. This book describes the kind of preaching that is at the heart of the awakening that must come.”

Timothy George, founding dean of Beeson Divinity School and a senior editor at Christianity Today

    Awesome book, your preaching never be the same. A book to read over and over again to really get it to sink in and really be a part all who you are. I am having to really study this book because it is something I desire for my ministry and preaching, to paint a picture, a true, and full picture for my people to live and learn and be a part of there everyday life.

    I thought it was a good read. It does help to some degree. The biggest concern I have is that the author quotes liberals and conservatives without stating the difference. Since he's a Seminary Prof. I would have expected him to articulate the difference. And it never set forth the doctrine(s) we that should have us dancing! It built the case for the dancing more so than the doctrine. If you are a well read pastor/preacher and can wade through that sort of confusion, and know that Henri Nouwen, and Fosdick are liberals that you need to stay away from purchasing the book.I believe you can get an old stand by like Haddon Robinson's Biblical Preaching, and if you like maybe Swindoll or Evans' books on illustrations to help your preaching. Those are better suggestions, in my opinion.
