Publisher's Description

Keen insight for preaching and teaching Scripture are to be found in these pages. Several respected scholars here discuss how to read and live the Bible theologically in our contemporary context. Editors Michael Root and James Buckley maintain that these essays, though varied, share at least three assumptions: (1) The word of God (not necessarily human preaching and teaching) is "sharper than any two-edged sword." (2) Preaching, teaching, and living the Bible are firmly yet delicately intertwined in the communion of saints. (3) There are distinctive ministries of preaching and teaching in the church as well as other liturgical and diaconal ministries.

With its complementary reflections from theologians, exegetes, and preachers, Sharper Than a Two-Edged Sword will appeal to any clergy or laypeople who find themselves uncertain about how to relevantly preach, teach, and live the Bible today.
