       In this book, based on her 2003 Beecher Lectures, Ellen Davis argues and demonstrates that the activities of biblical interpretation and preaching are essentially related as arts and, in fact, as the arts most fundamental to the life of the church. Because preaching is an art and not a method, the skills it requires are best learned by sympathy, not in abstraction. In these essays, therefore, as she discusses such important issues as the urgent and speaking presence of the Old Testament for preaching, preaching the psalms and welcoming them as poetry, and Christological preaching of the Old Testament, she also presents a convocation of preaching voices form across centuries--Deitrich Bonhoffer, John Donne, Lancelot Andrewes, exploring how each dealt with problems and puzzles the text presents and learning from them the basic principles of biblical interpretation and communication of the gospel message found in both Testaments. She asks in the process, What can ordinary preachers learn from these masters of the art? Davis includes some of her own sermons as contemporary examples.
