Product Description

What if preachers were as contagiously joyful in their preaching as Louis Armstrong was in his playing and singing? As rich in their sermonic renderings as Sarah Vaughan was in her musical vocals? As honest about heartache as Billie Holiday was every time she sang about the blues of life? As alluringly clear as the angelic voice of Ella Fitzgerald? As tenaciously uninhibited in the action of creating as Duke Ellington?

Can preaching be enhanced through the metaphor of jazz? Can an understanding of the inner dynamics of jazz--its particular forms, rules, and styles--inform one's practice of preaching as well? Can jazz's simultaneous structure and spontaneity help preachers better understand their own art?

Author, professor, and pastor Dr. Kirk Byron Jones explains how an understanding and application of the key elements of the musical art form known as jazz can dramatically improve one's preaching in The Jazz of Preaching: How to Preach with Great Freedom and Joy. Byron provides well explained examples, expounds upon the key elements of jazz, and ties it all in with preaching. Drawing upon a deep love of Jazz and enlivening the discussion with insights acquired from the realities of African American preaching, The Jazz of Preaching introduce readers to the rich and rewarding possibilities for constructing and delivering the sermon.
