Product Description

Why is it that we so often miss the present reality of Christ? Why is it that we don't preach Christ crucified and RISEN(!) here and now? Why do we miss this? Kierkeggard believed that Christendom needed to be "reintroduced" to Christianity, and what better way to do this than by emphasizing the immanent presence of Christ as risen Lord here and now?

In Undone by Easter: Keeping Preaching Fresh,a much needed breath of cool air, William Willimon proposes easy steps that we can take that will not only make our preaching more entertaining, but steps that will infuse it with the reality of Christ's resurrection and the blessing that Christians live with every day-that Christ is risen and that this reality has the power to transform our lives.

Publisher's Description

Face the prospect of preaching your next Easter sermon with joy and confidence, rather than worry about finding something new to say.
Preachers dread the arrival of Easter, because these holy days bring the daunting task of finding new ways to tell the old stories everyone's heard so many times before. But what if it were only we preachers who are bored with these stories? asks Will Willimon. What if people keep showing up at Easter because the story of God's victory over death continues to hold power for them? What if the point were not to capitulate to the culture's insatiable appetite for novelty, but to tell the old stories faithfully, trusting in the power of the Spirit to make the text, the congregation, and yes, even the preacher come alive again in the preaching event?
