    DescriptionIn 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
    "'Lord, how can man preach thy eternal word?' asked the seventeenth-century poet George Herbert. Darrell Johnson takes up the question of how a human person can speak God's Word to a contemporary congregation, and he does it in a way that takes us beyond the art of preaching--into its heart. Darrell Johnson's thoughtful, articulate, pastoral voice is heard throughout the book, as he generously shares his own sermon-making experience and expertise with those who are learning to preach. But this book goes beyond being a textbook for preachers: it is a meditation on the mystery of God's self-disclosure. Darrell Johnson has written a book that is a refreshing gift to the church, challenging the reader to engage every sermon, whether as preacher or as listener, in a spirit of awe-filled thanksgiving to the One who continues to speak God's eternal Word through mortal speakers."--Maxine Hancock, Ph.D., professor of interdisciplinary studies and spiritual theology, Regent College, and author of Living on Less & Liking It More and Re-evaluating Your Commitments
