The headlines are where daily life meets the public square—be it through social-media feeds, news outlets, or daily chatter. Preachers often feel stuck when met with quickly shifting and dense media topics. If and when preachers determine it is appropriate to address issues that arise in the news cycle, they are often at a loss for how to speak about these issues from the pulpit. When preachers understand that a responsibility to sustain life is embedded in the purposes of preaching, they discover greater fluidity between the everyday world, the biblical text, and preaching itself. Preaching the Headlines engages the intersections of social and religious discourse to help communities attend to everyday issues as matters of faith and faith as a practical, everyday aspect of life.

This book reframes preaching as an ongoing conversation between the modern world and the world of the text, exploring where the divides between the two may be less rigid than we acknowledge. In preaching, the preacher uses what they know about life as a bridge to the text, while life in the text provides the bridge back to faith in the contemporary world.

This title is part of Working Preacher Books, a new series of compelling, timely books on biblical preaching from Luther Seminary and Fortress Press. God uses good preaching to change lives. Working Preacher Books will help preachers make the Bible come alive every time they preach.
