Description: After the horrors and violence of the twentieth century, words can seem futile. In this reflection on the place of preaching today, Richard Lischer recognises that our mass-communication culture is exhausted by words. Facing up to language’s disappointments and dead ends, he opens a path to its true end. With chapters on vocation, interpretation, narration, and reconciliation, this book shows how faithful reading of Scripture rather than flashy performance paves the way for effective preaching; Lischer challenges conventional storytelling with a deeper and more biblical view of narrative preaching. The ultimate purpose of preaching, he argues, is to speak God’s peace, the message of reconciliation. While this book will surely be invaluable to pastors and preachers, his honest, readable style will appeal to anyone concerned with speaking Christianly.
