A Groundbreaking Resource for Preaching
If the church wishes to converse effectively with a culture, it must learn the cultures language. Today, shifts in technology mean that language is increasingly one of symbols and metaphors, stories and imagesnot words.
So what does this mean for the sermon, that long-standing, word-based tradition of Christianity?
In this ground-breaking resource, bestselling author Leonard Sweet offers an alternative to traditional models of preaching, one that is fitting to a new culture and a new mode of thinking. The first book of its kind to move preaching beyond its pulpit-centric fixation and toward more interactive, participatory modes of communication, Sweet presents both a challenge and a path forward for a church struggling to maintain its relevance in a post-modern, media-saturated culture.
Leonard Sweet is an author of many books, professor (Drew University, George Fox University, Tabor College), creator of preachthestory.com, and a popular speaker throughout North America and the world. His "Napkin Scribbles" podcasts are available on leonardsweet.com
