Publisher's Description

An introductory-level textbook from one of the best-known preachers in the country, The Sermon: Dancing the Edge of Mystery offers preachers a well-shaped, imaginative, and delightfully spry overview of the sermon. The student learns of the revolution in homiletics of the past 25 years and is helped to understand the sermon in terms of the movement of time, place, shape, space, conflict, complication, and the "sudden shift" of the text.

For students new to preaching, these dynamic movements are summed up in a ten-step process that moves speaker from preparation to presentation.

Author Bio

Rev. Dr. Eugene L. Lowry served as professor of preaching for over 30 years at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, MO. Now that he is no longer actively serving as the William K. McElvaney Professor of Preaching, his travels as preacher, teacher and pianist have broadened in scope.

Ordained a United Methodist minister, Dr. Lowry's academic preparation includes four degrees, culminating with a doctorate ineducation from the University of Kansas.

He was Senior Scholar in Residence at Drew University Theological School fall 2003 and fall 2004; in the spring of 1999 he was aguest professor at Princeton Theological Seminary. Lowry has been featured in the Great Preachers series on the Odyssey Television Channel. He delivered the 2009 Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School and the 2011 William L. Self Lectureship on preaching at McAfee Theological Seminary. These lectures form the basis for this book.

Through the years he has preached in hundreds of churches, conferences and regional events in over 20 denominations as well as lecturing in 50 graduate theological seminaries across North America.

His writings include six books on narrative preaching and over twenty journal articles and book chapters on preaching, worship, Biblical study, educational philosophy and creativity. His keyboard lecture/concerts relating jazz and Christianity have resulted in four recordings in the blues/jazz mode.
