Publisher's Description

The church in America is part of a changing culture, and today's preachers must be prepared to engage the unique issues of our postmodern age.

Editor Scott M. Gibson has skillfully combined the works of many well-known preachers, including Haddon Robinson and Bryan Chapell, into one practical guide written for present and future church leaders. Including questions for reflection and suggestions for further reading, this helpful resource addresses important topics such as preaching to a postmodern audience, pluralism, and the intersection of preaching and psychology.

"Preaching to a Shifting Culture is a must-read for preachers. It intensified my passion to preach Scripture, it clarified for me some critical issues related to preaching, and it triggered some ideas and strategies I will biild into my preaching."--Steve Mathewson, author of The Art of Preaching Old Testament Narrative

"A stimulating potpourri of evangelical insights for changing times."--Michael Quicke, Charles Koller Professor of Preaching and Communications, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Timely and relevant, this collection of essays thoughtfully explores the issues facing today's preacher and calls today's preacher to thoughtfully face the issues."--Patricia Batten, pastor, Village Baptist Church, Kennebunkport, Maine

"Those who are called to proclaim the Word in a contemporary setting will benefit from the analysis and suggestions offered in this outstanding collection."--Michael Duduit, editor, Preaching magazine

    This review was written for Preaching to a Shifting Culture.
    Scott Gibsons, Preaching to a Shifting Culture brings together some of Evangelicalisms most skillful homileticicians with one common goal; instruct preachers in the art and science of communicating the immutable truths of Scripture to an ever changing culture. Gibson employs the expertise of such heavy hitters as Ray Lubeck, Bryan Chapell, Haddon Robinson, Donald Sunukjian, Jeffrey Arthurs, et. al. lending the weight and bearing their combined years of preaching ministry offers in tandem to his own knowledge and skill. Gibson capitalizes on the contributors various strengths and allows them to thoroughly treat their topics. The contributors offer insight into a wide range of homiletic challenges. The book can be divided into two primary sections: the first six chapters addressing the science of sermon preparation; addressing challenges such as: the place of the Old and New Testaments in our new millennium, preaching Christ in a world hostile to Him, the relevance of expository preaching today, connecting with your congregation through the sermon, and shaping the sermon for modern listeners. The last six chapters address the art of sermon presentation; addressing wholly different homiletic challenges: determining whos listening to the preacher, preaching to the whole church, the psychology of preaching, preaching to the postmodern mind, evangelical preaching in a global context, and biblical preaching in an anti-authority age. Every facet of this book approaches the homiletic task with meaningful insight and practical admonition for the modern preacher.The question might legitimately be posed, Why do we need another book on preaching? Admittedly, the Evangelical market has recently been flooded with tomes of one sort or another, and preachers might unwittingly deceive themselves into believing the way preaching has always been done is sufficient to accomplish the mission of the twenty-first century. Gibson disagrees.
