Product Description

Conversant with current theories of what makes for a good preacher (e.g., storyteller, herald, and soul therapist), Long argues for a more inclusive framework of "bearing witness." He attacks old rules of thumb, exposes his own failings, and offers concrete proposals on allowing the theological image of bearing witness to the gospel to govern and organize every aspect of creating a sermon.

Publisher's Description

This thorough and detailed revision of The Witness of Preaching is even clearer and more helpful than the first edition. Long has updated the language, expanded the key chapter on biblical exegesis, and included more examples of sermon forms, illustrations, and conclusions. He continues to critically engage the best thinkers in the field of homiletics, bringing into the conversation both important new voices and the latest works of those who appeared in the first edition. In addition, he addresses some of the new forces at work, such as the use of video clips and PowerPoint presentations in sermons.

He is the author of several books, including The Senses of Preaching (WJK), Preaching and the Literary Forms of the Bible, and Whispering the Lyrics: Sermons for Lent and Easter.
