Publisher's Description

Doing justice to the complexity of the preaching task and the questions that underlie it, Wilson organizes both the preparation and the content of the sermon around its "four pages."  Each "page" addresses a different theological and creative component of what happens in any sermon. Page One presents the trouble or conflict that takes place in or that underscores the biblical text itself.  Page Two looks at similar conflict--sin or brokenness--in our own time.  Page Three returns to the Bible to identify where God is at work in or behind the text--in other words, to discover the good news.  Page Four points to God at work in our world, particularly in relation to the situations described in Page Two.

    I have wanted to be efficient at writing sermons all my life. I will soon be thirty-four years old and I have been preaching for twenty years. I ran across Dr. Wilson's book and it has been refreshing and challenging. I am learning that sermon preparation can be enjoyable and unstressfull. He designs this book in a way that gives an assignment for each day of the week beginning no later than Tuesday! Buy this book and take your time and read this book! You'll be glad you did, I am! Preaching is lacking in our churches today! We need to return to Biblical preaching! Not three points here or there! I've never heard Jesus preach a three point sermon! Why should we? God's Holy Spirit is still speaking to us today and through us today. Let's present our SERMONS as offerings to God! Warning: This book will require you to be creative, it will also require you to change and be changed!

    All the best
