For pastors who want a focused study on prophetic preaching--both in terms of theology and of specific preaching skills--this book brings together a group of today's most influential Christian preachers. With grace and authority, these contributors offer biblical and personal messages on the specific purposes, elements, challenges, and rewards of preaching prophetically, as well as addressing common questions such as:
What's the purpose and aim of prophetic preaching
How does one preach prophetically in the most effective way
What are the common misconceptions
How does a preacher challenge but not overwhelm people with the call of discipleship
Including chapters such as The Basis of Prophetic Preaching, What all Good Preacher's Do, Grace-full Prophetic Preaching, and Challenging Hearers will encourage pastors to speak with compassion and will encourage pastors to speak with compassion and courage as they gently but boldly lead their flocks to God.
