Editorial Reviews

"This volume is filled with theologically smart and practically wise counsel--a welcome conversation partner, a thoughtful companion, and thus an essential guide to every preacher who pastors in settings that request change and create high anxiety. Thank you, David Mosser, for amassing the best theorists and practitioners to create a volume that will be gratefully and eagerly consumed by pastoring preachers!" David Fleer, Professor of Homiletics, Lipscomb University
"This collection of rich essays has about it a contagion concerning the bewilderment, burden, and wondrous mystery of ordained ministry. It plunges into the 'mind-numbing changes' that the church now faces. It offers, in response to that change, reflection by experienced veterans of preaching who offer their self-critical honesty, their deep wisdom, and their humor that prevents taking themselves too seriously. The reader will be engaged by alert colleagues who exhibit joyous readiness for the challenge of ministry in hard times." Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary
"This book is a treasure trove of wise, practical advice for pastors who want to be transformative leaders and for congregations who want a future. We can't follow a living God without being willing to move into the future, this book teaches us how to do that more faithfully." William H. Willimon, Bishop, North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church
