Exercises in the art and craft of sermon preparation.
Every preacher, from the novice to the most experienced, needs fresh inspiration to build new skills and to inject creativity into their sermon preparation.
A Sermon Workbook addresses the essentials for effective preaching in our multi-tasking, multi-ethnic, sound-bite society. It offers theological clarity about why we preach, and what matters most. The esteemed teaching team of Tom Troeger and Nora Tisdale invite the reader into their Yale Divinity School classroom, guiding the reader to build skill upon skill, working through inventive and engaging exercises. The workbook format can be used in a linear fashion, beginning to end. Or readers can pick and choose the chapters to tailor-fit their own needs. In either case, this is a remarkable and flexible resource, instantly accessible and useful for anyone tasked with the proclamation of the Word.
