Item description for Preaching the Psalms by James C. Howell & J. Clinton McCann...
Overview In recent years the church has rediscovered the Psalter as a source of inspiration and language for the praise of God in worship. Yet, in spite of this fact, the Psalms are often neglected in preparing for one of the central acts of worship:preaching. Even among those whose preaching follows the lectionary--with its weekly visit to the Psalter--many preachers assume that other texts will lend themselves better to the task of preaching. J. Clinton McCann and James C. Howell propose to address this perception by demonstrating that the Psalms offer the preacher broad and rich possibilities for the congregation's engagement with Scripture in preaching. The book includes several sample sermons that will further clarify the author's points regarding the Psalms as a source for Christian preaching.
This book is designed to help preachers find and use the riches of the Psalms for preaching.
The authors address the perception that the Psalms often go neglected in preparing for one of the central acts of worship: preaching.
