Product description

In these pages you will find a vision of preaching that is both illuminating and inspiring. Drawing from biblical and theological resources as well as years in the pulpit, Darrell Johnson takes us far beyond the mere mechanics of delivering sermons. He dynamically unpacks the link between the human task of speaking to a congregation and the real, gracious action and presence of the living Christ in and through our proclamation. Johnson assists preachers to profoundly engage the biblical text and then liberates them to make use of their own personality, gifts and abilities as they communicate that message. This book is for any pastor or student who wants to cultivate a deeper pulpit approach, one that participates in the transforming mystery of God working through our less-than-perfect proclamation. Here is a solid foundation for preaching the good news as if God was living, Jesus was resurrected and the Holy Spirit was faithfully at work among us.

Review quote

"Breathlessly passionate, carefully studied, humbly dependent, spiritually theological, eagerly convicted, thoughtfully practical, joyfully hopeful: these words describe Darrell Johnson, and they are among the infectious qualities of The Glory of Preaching. By all means, read this book and 'participate in God's transformation of the world.'"--Mark Labberton, Lloyd John Ogilvie Professor of Preaching, Fuller Theological Seminary
