Product Description

In The Glory of Preaching: Participating in God's Transformation of the World, Professor Darrell Johnson argues that preaching is part of God's plan for the World. Consequently, when we preach, we participate in the great mystery of God speaking in his word, to the world, through us. Johnson provides a complete map for sermon construction, showing both passionately and carefully, how to deliver the sermon effectively by tying the sermon to the art of communication. Johnson is a brilliant communicator, and his insights will help you season your sermons with clarity and insight. This book truly constitutes not only another 'how to' on preaching, but a genuine theological construction of what a sermon 'is' at its very spiritual and divinely given core. This book is sure to challenge how we think about preaching and inspire us to new heights of expository creativity that will grip our audiences with the massage of the Gospel. As such it is a theology, a hermeneutics, and a preaching guide, and a lesson in the art of communication all wrapped into one.

Publisher's Description

In these pages you will find a vision of preaching that is both illuminating and inspiring. Drawing from biblical and theological resources as well as years in the pulpit, Darrell Johnson takes us far beyond the mere mechanics of delivering sermons. He dynamically unpacks the link between the human task of speaking to a congregation and the real, gracious action and presence of the living Christ in and through our proclamation. Johnson assists preachers to profoundly engage the biblical text and then liberates them to make use of their own personality, gifts and abilities as they communicate that message. This book is for any pastor or student who wants to cultivate a deeper pulpit approach, one that participates in the transforming mystery of God working through our less-than-perfect proclamation. Here is a solid foundation for preaching the good news as if God was living, Jesus was resurrected and the Holy Spirit was faithfully at work among us.
