Item description for Cross Talk: Preaching Redemption Here and Now by Sally A. Brown...
Overview Contending that preachers have become silent on one of the major doctrinal themes of the Christian faith-the meaning of the crucifixion and the cross as a theological symbol-Sally Brown describes the nature and causes of this phenomenon and provides a strategy for reclaiming "cross talk" in the pulpit. Proposing a metaphorical and pastoral approach to preaching about the cross, Brown demonstrates how in doing so preachers will find in New Testament metaphors a far better model for how to talk about the cross today than in the atonement theories learned in seminary. She offers specific examples in sermons designed for particular homiletical occasions.

Brown describes the nature and causes of this phenomenon and provides a strategy for reclaiming "cross talk" in the pulpit. Brown proposes a metaphorical and pastoral model for preaching about the cross. Preachers can reclaim preaching on the cross, she urges, by joining New Testament metaphors to pastoral situations rather than adapting atonement theories for the pulpit. She offers specific examples in sermons designed for particular homiletical occasions.
