Preach on difficult topics so that the message can be heard and transformative without damaging the pastor-congregation relationship.Preachers increasingly see the need to deliver sermons that are
"dangerous" in a variety of ways: the way they challenge hearers'
comfort levels and challenge established powers and hierarchies. Author Frank Thomas
helps readers understand those dangersâ€”especially the forces of power
and hierarchy that are so intrinsic in our everyday lives and in society
as a whole. He teaches how to anticipate and navigate those forces, to
open opportunities for dangerous preaching, and to mitigate negative
impact on congregants, the preacher, and the preacher-congregation
Surviving a Dangerous Sermon is a logical follow-up to Thomas's previous book, How to Preach a Dangerous Sermon.
It equips preachers to say what must be said, in a way that it is
heard, so that the sermon has a chance to do its work on human hearts,
without negative consequences.
