Item description for THE WORD BEFORE THE POWERS by Charles L. Campbell...

Campbell helps to reintegrate Word and sacrament through a fresh focus on how the proclamation of the Word is always a challenge to the powers that be. (Christian)

Publishers Description
There is much to applaud in a book such as this. Campbell does an excellent job bringing to the surface an important facet of Christian practice that has often gone unnoticed by those writiers that have been drawing attention to the biblical concept of the principalities and powers (Wink, et al). Campbell shows how the Christian practices of preaching forms the church as a community capable of resisting the powers and how preaching is itself, one of the forms of resistance the church engages in. This is a helpful complement to many recent contributions to political theology which center on the Eucharist as a resource for the church confronting the powers. Campbell helps to reintegrate word and sacrament through a fresh focus on how the proclamation of the word is always a challenge to the powers that be (despite how we may fall short of that vision).

Reviews - What do customers think about THE WORD BEFORE THE POWERS?

Broad application of Biblical Prophetic Tradition in Post-Modern Times  Oct 2, 2009
This book is amazing on 3 levels. First, Charles Campbell is a good author and preacher, regardless of you perspective you will benefit. Second, This book is set in the midst of a dialogue with real-life survivors from a French community which hid Jews in Vicii France. By studying prophetic preaching in the context of our own culture's struggles between economic opportunity and justice Campbell does North American preacher's a big service. Unfortunately it's not that often in homiletics textbooks that you get such fine authorship combined with practical application-but here it abounds. You will never think of the "principalities and the powers" the same again. Whether you're Pentecostal or borderline secularist, Campbell's interpretation will challenge and inspire you from either end of the spectrum--perhaps the book's most important contribution.
The film referenced in the book is outstanding. It might change your life if you watch it (not included--a bit pricey separate purchase but well worth it to complete the understanding).
Highly Recommended! I used this as a textbook for a Master's Level preaching class I taught on Prophetic Preaching. It generated some of the very best discussions I've ever had.
