Item description for Prepare a Road!: Preaching Vocation, Community Voice, Marketplace Vision by Kim L. Beckmann...

Lutheran pastor Kim Beckmann presents a challenging new method for engaging scripture in the preparation of sermons for the parish. Utilizing the preacher s own sense of vocation, the community s voice, and the collective vision for the Gospel in the marketplace, Beckmann teaches us how to read the scriptures with fresh eyes, to see the coming Kingdom of God in encounters and events as ordinary as going on site with a local bulldozer operator to prepare a road in the wilderness. A fresh and exciting look at preaching, community, and the Word of God as it is lived every day by the People of God. In my sermon-writing cell, surrounded by a feast of commentary, I find myself casting a wandering (and wondering) eye out the window toward the village square, where this gospel, my message, will finally have to live. What if the sermon could be conceived in the very soil in which it has to take root? While many of us consider the Bible to be the favorite storybook into which we want to climb, we nevertheless often find its language inaccessible, its setting unfamiliar, and the apprehension of its real meanings for daily life frustrating to pursue. In our frankly market-driven society, where such a difficult story must compete with many other stories that are both easier to access and seemingly easier to inhabit, the gospel story calls forth faithful and inspired interpreters and equally faithful and inspired tellers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prepare a Road!: Preaching Vocation, Community Voice, Marketplace Vision?

It's time to leave the castle...  May 23, 2003
I have to admit that I am not only a relatively new preacher but I am also a young preacher. I often find myself alone in my study trying to figure out how to make a particular text relevant to those who gather on Sunday mornings. Prepare a Road! has challenged me. It has challenged me to leave the safety of my study and get my hands dirty. Do I really know the people that I am preaching to? Do I really know their struggles, fears, successes and failures? Now, I know that I have a lot more work to do. Or at least I have more shape for the work that I am already doing. I appreciate all of the down to earth examples that the author uses throughout the book. Growing up in Northern Wisconsin, I recognized many of the places that she talked about. And I now recognize how important it is for me to know these common places in this community. Prepare a Road! is Pastor Kim's title. In this community, I have to figure out how to prepare a field!
