Product Description

The church in America is part of a changing culture, and today's preachers must be prepared to engage the unique issues of our postmodern age. To this end, Scott M. Gibson offers this book, a one-of-a-kind collection of the insights of leaders in the fields of worship and preaching. Combining the words of such well-known preachers as Haddon Robinson and Bryan Chapell, among others, this collection addresses such vital topics as preaching to a postmodern audience, pluralism, the intersection of preaching and psychology, and biblical preaching in an anti-authority age. As a result, this practical guide to relevant preaching will be readily received by today's preachers, as well as by those who are preparing to preach tomorrow.

    Scott Gibsons, Preaching to a Shifting Culture brings together some of Evangelicalisms most skillful homileticicians with one common goal; instruct preachers in the art and science of communicating the immutable truths of Scripture to an ever changing culture. Gibson employs the expertise of such heavy hitters as Ray Lubeck, Bryan Chapell, Haddon Robinson, Donald Sunukjian, Jeffrey Arthurs, et. al. lending the weight and bearing their combined years of preaching ministry offers in tandem to his own knowledge and skill. Gibson capitalizes on the contributors various strengths and allows them to thoroughly treat their topics. The contributors offer insight into a wide range of homiletic challenges. The book can be divided into two primary sections: the first six chapters addressing the science of sermon preparation; addressing challenges such as: the place of the Old and New Testaments in our new millennium, preaching Christ in a world hostile to Him, the relevance of expository preaching today, connecting with your congregation through the sermon, and shaping the sermon for modern listeners. The last six chapters address the art of sermon presentation; addressing wholly different homiletic challenges: determining whos listening to the preacher, preaching to the whole church, the psychology of preaching, preaching to the postmodern mind, evangelical preaching in a global context, and biblical preaching in an anti-authority age. Every facet of this book approaches the homiletic task with meaningful insight and practical admonition for the modern preacher.The question might legitimately be posed, Why do we need another book on preaching? Admittedly, the Evangelical market has recently been flooded with tomes of one sort or another, and preachers might unwittingly deceive themselves into believing the way preaching has always been done is sufficient to accomplish the mission of the twenty-first century. Gibson disagrees.
