Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching What We Practice: Proclamation and Moral Discernment?

A Open Narrative Approach to Preaching the Hard Issues  Sep 11, 2008
This was the first book that was assigned for the Moral Formation class at Harding Graduate School. The book was excellent as well as challenging. It dealt with the art of preaching the morally difficult subject. It gave an approach to preaching that will interact with the people in the pew. It dealt with some of the important moral issues of the current culture, such as prayer, forgiveness, house holding, hospitality, and reverence. These might not seem to be the hot moral issues of the day, but these topics are foundational in dealing with the moral world around us. The book deals with the process of developing a sermon that will engage the listener in an discerning matter. It talked about the tension and telos in moral discernment and the role of community to develop moral cohesion with the preaching event.

This book is advanced for the preacher. If you are a preach involved in the discipline of three point sermons only, this book will not help you. It builds the model of preaching on the Craddock style of narrative-inductive. It is not a book for the undergraduate or the new preacher. It is deep wisdom and theory for the experienced and narrative preachers in the church. If you are looking for a polish on the pulpit, it is a book that gives a refined finish.
