Veteran homiletics expert Jeffrey Arthurs explores a neglected aspect of church services in Devote Yourself to the Public Reading of Scripture.
Arthurs' objective is to increase the quantity, quality, and no doubt the attention paid to the public reading of Scripture in church worship services. Taking Eugene Peterson's metaphors in Eat this Book as his que, Arthurs points out the various ways public reading can be incorporated into church services. Arthurs also explains how the public reading can be done well and compellingly. This book includes a DVD in which Arthurs demonstrates such techniques as posture, diction, and movement.
Scripture reading should be a highlight of a worship service. In this book, Dr. Arthurs guides church leaders through giving higher priority to the public Scripture reading by increasing both its quantity and quality. Includes DVD.
