    DescriptionThis is a practical guide to preaching, grounded in the innovative and original theory of the SIFT method, written by two practical theologians who preach Sunday by Sunday.This is a practical book about preaching, written for preachers by two practical theologians who themselves preach Sunday by Sunday. It is a practical book because it is grounded in an innovative and highly original theory about the nature of preaching known as the SIFT method. This theory draws together the best of contemporary scholarship about hermeneutics with compelling insights from modern research concerning psychological type.After presenting the theory, Leslie J Francis and Andrew Village provide concrete examples of the SIFT method of biblical hermeneutics and liturgical preaching. This approach releases the gospel message to be proclaimed and to be heard in a full and rounded manner that touches all of the human mind and soul.Part 1 - Preaching and Hermeneutics includes: Preaching and meaning; Preachers as readers; Perception and evaluation in reading; Reading the Bible; and, Reading the Spirit; Reading the context. Part 2 - Preaching and Psychological Type includes: Theology and individual differences; Models of personality; Understanding psychological type; Psychological type and faith; Psychological type and reading the Bible; and, Psychological type and preaching.
