6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Victor McCracken on June 13, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of essays from _Journal for Preachers_ written by some of the most prominent preacher/theologians in America today. Barbara Brown Taylor, William Willimon, Stanley Hauerwas, and Walter Brueggemann all speak to the question of how the church may properly speak in a post-Christian culture. The value of the book comes from both the rigor with which many of the writers engage the biblical text (e.g. Brueggemann) and the artful way the writers manifest the "hows" of preaching the gospel to a culture where the church is increasingly thrust to the margins (e.g. Brown Taylor and Willimon). Brown Taylor's "Preaching the Terrors" and Willimon's "Postmodern Preaching" stand out from the rest of the essays, but one will not be disappointed by any of the authors.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy M. Hoover on October 14, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me by a professor of mine and it did not disappoint. The heavyweights involved are Walter Brueggemann, Stanley Hauerwas, Barbara Brown Taylor, and William Willimon. They solidly engage the reader from the start, demonstrating the possibility of the preacher preaching as though his/her congregation were actually in exile. This concept is, in fact, both presupposed and argued by Brueggemann, whose three essays individually are worth the price of the book. Brueggemann provides the theoretical material and can at times be a little heavy for preachers who may not have had intense theological training. However, if one can follow him, the rewards are great. Hauerwas suggests that the message should be embodied by the preacher; his essays also include two sermons in which the reader can see Hauerwas' method at work. Taylor and Willimon are both preachers; the focus of their writings is the confrontational content of the preacher's message to evoke a response. Willimon also cautions us not to fear the text, but to listen to it in all its dimensions, and even to allow it not to be understood (the reader will understand this statement upon completion of Willimon's work)! The book is fascinating, providing much grist for preachers to work from in forming their own preaching theology. The only complaint is that the material slows down in the middle with Hauerwas and Taylor (how can you compete with Brueggemann!?). But this is easily overcome by the exceptional strengths of Brueggemann and Willimon.
