Product Description

Featuring an newly revised edition of one of the standard introductory preaching textbooks on the market today, The Witness of Preaching, Third Edition offers a practical, step-by-step guide to writing a sermon. Rooted in a solid theological foundation, veteran preacher and best-selling author Thomas G. Long centers his approach on the biblical concept of witness. To be a preacher, Long posits, is to be a witness to God's work in the world— one who sees before speaking, one whose task is to "tell thetruth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what is seen."

This updated edition freshens up language and anecdotes, contains an extensive new analysis of the use of multimedia and its impact on preaching, and adds a completely new chapter on plagiarism in preaching. Included for the first time are four complete sermons, with Long's commentary and analysis. The sermons were written and originally preached by Barbara Brown Taylor, Cleophus J. LaRue. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli, and Edmund Steimle.

With this third edition, The Witness of Preaching reaffirms itself as the essential resource for seminary students as well as new and experienced preachers.

Editorial Reviews

"The only preaching textbook that I can imagine improving on The Witness of Preaching is this third edition, which updates the content for the next generation of preachers. It features an updated version of the biblical exegesis process that takes cutting-edge methodologies into account, a chapter on digital technology in relation to preaching, and a new section that features Long’s analysis of the form of sermons by several of today’s most accomplished pulpit communicators. The Witness of Preaching equips today’s witnesses to preach compelling, coherent sermons to a new generation. It will take its place at the top of the required reading list as my mainstay 'go-to' textbook for my next preaching class!"
—Alyce M. McKenzie, Le Van Professor of Preaching and Worship, Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor, and Director of The Perkins Center for Preaching Excellence, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
