Reviews - What do customers think about Proclamation and Theology (Horizons in Theology)?

Book Review Proclamation and Theology  Jul 29, 2006
Willimon has written this book in a language that is easy to understand. There is no long winded sentences explaining abstract concepts. Rather, he writes in a concise manner making his point evident, clear and practical.

There is nolding back on his theology. He seems to offer no apologies for his stance on the subject. You get the sense he is a man of conviction who believes in what he writes. At the same time he also challenges the reader to think on their own view on the subject.

This is a good book that those who are undertaking pastoral degrees should read. In our times when we are awahsed with watered down "theology" topical preaching, Willimon gets back to basics. The student of the subject of preaching needs to be taught good sound theology and practicemof preaching. In this book Willimon covers this very well.
