Product description


''Choosing to Preach' does for preachers what Baskin-Robbins does for kids. It shows us more options than we knew existed. And every one is delicious! Enjoy.' -- Kent Edwards

'We have but one great truth to preach, but there are as many ways to preach it as there are preachers. In this important volume, Kenton Anderson teaches us to cherish two things: well-spoken truth and our own glorious diversity.' -- Calvin Miller, Author

From the Back Cover

Today, traditional forms of preaching are being scrutinized and challenged. The biblical sermon is not immune to the pressure to evolve or even fall by the wayside, leaving pastors and seminary students confused over how best to communicate to today's listeners.

In this forward-looking textbook, Kenton Anderson delivers a strong call to current and future ministers to indeed choose to preach biblical sermons, despite the obstacles to doing so. While preaching itself is non-negotiable, the exact form it takes can be much more flexible, allowing people to hear from God as they hear his Word preached.

Rather than presenting one model or process for preparing a sermon, Anderson explains several available options. As you discern your message from the Bible, will you begin with the text (deductive) or with the listener (inductive)? Will you focus on the idea (cognitive) or the image (affective)?

The choices you make lead to five possible sermon structures:

• DECLARATIVE--make an argument
• PRAGMATIC--solve a mystery
• NARRATIVE--tell a story
• VISIONARY--paint a picture
• INTEGRATIVE--sing a song

Each model is described in detail and related to well-known contemporary preachers, including John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Eugene Lowry, and Rob Bell. This book equips you with a variety of tools for your preaching tool kit. A CD-ROM with additional helpful resources is included, as well as discussion questions and practical exercises.
