BOOK EXCERPT:

Transformational Preaching: Theory and practice is a comprehensive textbook for the beginning student of preaching, the graduate student in pulpit discourse, or the seasoned preacher. Seeking to reclaim the pulpit for biblical preaching, the book counteracts the popular "teaching" approach that is common today, and argues that preaching must be persuasive rather than informative, that the preacher is central to the act of preaching, and that through the preaching event, both preacher and listener together fashion the "message" and its meaning. Both theoretical and highly practical, the book offers a challenging look at all aspects of the preaching ministry. It contextualizes preaching in pastoral ministry and congregational worship, but, most significantly, argues that the practice of preaching must be informed and driven by theory. As such, the book draws from a wide perspective of disciplines, including biblical theology, classical rhetoric, contemporary human communication, public discourse, persuasion, linguistics, performance, and orality. The book's wealth of practical guidelines for every step of sermon development encourages students to apply general principles within their own contexts of ministry.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Every day, a pastor faces armies of despair, fatigue, exhaustion, and frustration. That blessed hope of a Spurgeon church has morphed into a Paul prison. Every time he looks up, there is another attack. First errors are found, then sin; doctrinal arguing leads to internal strife. The army of the nation’s culture surrounds for the kill. The pastor places his baptism handkerchief on a broom handle and crawls out to surrender. Just then, he looks to the horizon to see a glorious alliance of sixty-six armies. The enemy turns in fear—many ride away, while others engage, only to be routed. The preacher had forgotten that there are more with us than against us. No matter the mess, God is with us. He has given his Spirit to move among us, and he has given us his word to defeat every attack. Grab this handbook and be encouraged; you can preach your way out of every mess.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Through this book, Craddock has, for a quarter century, been teaching countless students to preach lively, substantive, and faithful sermons. Preaching will... take its place, alongside the texts of Augustine, Fenelon, Broadus, Luccock, and others, as benchmark examples of the best wisdom in the treasury of homiletics."---Thomas G. Long, from the Foreword This groundbreaking volume has guided generations of students and pastors through the daunting challenge of learning to preach. Fred Craddock weaves history, theology, and hermeneutics into a practical, comprehensive, and contemporary text on how to prepare and deliver the sermon. Painstakingly prepared for seminary students and clergy, Preaching answers the fundamental question, How does one speak a word from God? This format provides an intelligible guide to sermon preparation and allows for concentrated study of all the particular dimensions of the homiletical process. "Fred Craddock's is a book filled with practical wisdom. It is free of the older homiletical prescriptions that too often confined the preacher's creativity. In place of rules, Craddock invites his readers to participate with him in the whole cycle of the preparation and delivery of sermons, and to do so in such a way that readers supplement the author's ideas with their own experiences and insights. Best of all, the book is free of jargon and the technical language of homiletics and theology. Preaching is a liberating book."---Richard Lischer, Duke University Divinity School
