Product Description

Miller's accomplishments as both a writer, for an amazing introduction read The Singer Trilogy, and a preacher, have enabled him to consider the postmodern pulpit in a manner that stimulates the mind and convicts the heart. Even the layout of the book, which places the story of the preacher on the right page and a forthright discussion of contemporary preaching on the left, is intriguing!

Publisher's Description

Three contemporary, humorous parables of a preacher who struggles with his need to change Sam the preacher wonders what has gone wrong with his sermons. Are people still listening? Well-known storyteller and communications professor Calvin Miller combines his fiction writing with his insight into preaching to address the changes faced by today’s preachers, especially the fact that contemporary congregations have shifted to a different way of listening. How can Sam recover his passion for preaching? In this short, entertaining, story-driven book, church leaders will see honest reflections of themselves. But the narrative humor also provides a clever way to stimulate thought and discussion on how preachers and preaching are changing. Some places in the story will lead to laughter, others will cause readers to pause and reflect. But whatever the reaction, The Sermon Maker leaves the reader encouraged and changed. Extensive commentary on the stories provides insight from the author into the best ways to communicate. Just as the story in the tremendously popular Who Moved My Cheese? impacted readers in the business world who were facing change, so this book is designed as a quick but stimulating story for any church leader who preaches or is concerned about the state of preaching today.
