  • God Of The Dangerous Sermon


    Every sermon has a theology, and a god of that theology behind it. Preaching is more effective, and has more integrity when preachers understand the god behind their theology. Specifically, whether the god is a universal God, like the one expressed by Christ and the Christian faith, or a tribal god, which is sometimes dressed up to resemble Christianity but is something else entirely.

    Frank A. Thomas culminates his exploration of the Dangerous Sermon with this book, which leads readers through the process of identifying and understanding the gods behind theology, and their connection to preaching. The reader is equipped to discern the metaphors, symbols, and rhetorical indicators which point to the god a preacher is serving and calling others to serve.

  • Say It : Celebrating Expository Preaching In The African American Tradition


    Expository preaching and African American style are partners, not enemies.

    Sadly, seminaries often function under the assumption that the African American preaching tradition is incompatible with expository preaching. They tend to believe that preachers who truly care about the text preach as white preachers traditionally have. This viewpoint is not only incorrect, but harmful. African Americans have a strong legacy of poignant, timely, impassioned preaching that is faithful to the text and reveals truth, justice, and power. In Say It! celebrated African American preachers teach young pastors how to do expository preaching in the African American style.

    Each chapter walks you through a sermon from a different African American pastor. That pastor will walk you through you his notes, his final manuscript, and explain how it all came together.

    This is an important and powerful resource for pastors and seminaries across the country, celebrating an often overlooked expression of faithful, biblical preaching.

  • From And Before God


    Imagine this scene. You are standing in the pulpit of your church preaching on a Sunday morning. Without your knowledge, the Lord Jesus himself is sitting in the last row, listening attentively to what you’re saying. How would this reality impact your preaching?

    The truth is that this is no mere illustration: the Lord is present in His churches every Sunday, listening to the preaching of His Word.

    The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:17 that ministers are to preach as from God and before God. Those who preach God’s Word are commissioned by God to preach, and they do their preaching before God, for an audience of one.

    This, according to Sugel Michelen, is the biblical foundation for expository preaching–preaching that draws out what is in the Word of God. In this work, Michelen, regarded as one of the best preachers in the Spanish-speaking church, makes a biblical case for expository preaching and models for readers how to prepare and preach as from and before God.

    Best-selling author, veteran pastor and professor, and now president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, Rev. Dr. Marvin McMickle returns to his passion for preaching in this new book, which explores the Great Commission as recorded in Acts 1:6-8, Be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

    Be My Witness offers a unique approach to the preaching task and suggests a way for preachers today to declare the gospel with relevance to the many issues and challenges society faces. McMickle explores the implications of what it means to be a witness for Jesus and considers a three-fold understanding of the word witness:

    Seeing something
    Saying something
    Suffering something

    Suggesting this passage be heard by preachers as a combination ordination charge, pastoral installation message, and seminary commencement address, McMickle develops a twenty-first century theology of preaching that encompasses both content and context for delivering the gospel message. Specifically, he explores the preacher’s need to wait for the Spirit’s power, to be Christ’s witness in the world, and to widen the scope of ministry-to the ends of the earth.

    Key features:

    Provides an exegetical examination of Jesus’ words in Acts 1:6-8
    Promotes sermon content that is faithful and attentive to justice, and the people and problems within a minister’s particular local church and community
