Product Description

The author contends that to preach is to engage a specific community of Christians in a process of growth and change over time. While every parish has its unique attributes and needs, there are some basic dynamics at work in moving a congregation through resistance and towards transformation. It is on these dynamics that the author focuses our attention as she describes a program of preaching meant to refashion a people.

Publisher's Description

Barbara Lundblad contends that to preach is to engage a specific community of Christians in a process of gradual growth and change. While every parish has its unique attributes and needs, there are some basic dynamics at work in moving a congregation through resistance and toward transformation. Lundblad focuses our attention on these dynamics as she describes a program of preaching meant to re-fashion a people. The steps include building a foundation of grace, re-imaging Jesus, naming and honoring the wounds of community members, naming and removing obstacles to change, describing alternative futures, and daring hope. The author addresses each of these themes separately in chapters that include a brief introduction, two sample sermons, and a conclusion. This book for preachers provides a model for transformation preaching.
