Product Description

Foreword by Don Wardlaw

This exceptional book by Charles Cosgrove and Dow Edgerton will be a rich resource for pastors wanting to reach their congregations in a fresh way. Rather than discussing preaching in general or even a specific approach to preaching, it focuses on a new way of engaging the biblical text for preaching.

In Other Words combines Cosgrove and Edgerton's critical acumen, creative imagination, and pastoral discernment to present contemporizing restatements of Scripture, speaking timeless truths in modern speech. In describing their "incarnational translation," the authors invite readers to imagine what the text might have looked like if produced in the preacher's own culture, time, and place. Drawing on translation theory, genre studies, and recent hermeneutical theory, they offer both a comprehensive theory of incarnational translation and a set of specific guidelines and examples for carrying it out.

Charles H. Cosgrove is professor of New Testament studies and Christian ethics at Northern Seminary, Lombard, Illinois. He is also the author of Appealing to Scripture in Moral Debate.

W. Dow Edgerton is associate professor of ministry and academic dean at Chicago Theological Seminary. He is also the author of Speak to Me That I May Speak: A Spirituality of Preaching.
