By Jonathan K. Dodson on March 3, 2004
Format: Paperback
Reading 360 Degree Preaching and discussing its content with Dr Quicke has contributed to both my understanding and experience of the Trinity in sermon preparation. In short, it has propelled me towards preaching as worship.
Summary
Quicke defines preaching as, "sharing the in-breaking of God's good news to create a new people in new community." He takes a fourfold approach in describing the nature and purpose of preaching: Prophetic, Transformational, Incarnational, and Diverse. These four elements can be briefly summarized as follows: 1) Prophetic - parallel between prophets and apostles in that they speak God's Word and understand God's Word to be God's deed (Greidanus). 2) Transformational - Jesus' preaching both amazed and antagonized people. Preaching should convict and convert, strengthen and encourage. 3) Incarnational - Jesus incarnational ministry was both to peoples and cultures and his preaching. He is the hinge of history intersecting every culture and people with His story. Jesus never wrote a book but he lived as story. He is the Story. 4) Diverse - Nearly 30 words in Scripture are used to convey preaching. There is no one model of preaching, instead there should be a variety of preaching styles and models.
He also provides a historical summary pointing to several key figures in the history of preaching. He notes Origen's seminal influence, the combination of three senses by which a reader could understand Scripture: literal, moral, mystical. As a result exegesis became intertwined with preaching and living. Augustine was a forerunner in understanding the text correctly in order to preach it persuasively (Greater existential and spiritual authority accompanies such preaching).

I have been blessed by not only reading this book, but also by having the privilege of being one of Dr. Quicke's students while he was a guest professor at Gordon-
Conwell Theological Seminary. He writes and speaks with great skill, sincerity, and passion. I hope that you will be as enriched by this book as much as I have been!
A Brief Overview
360-Degree Preaching provides a refreshing overview of the entire preaching dynamic, integrating spirituality with homiletics. While the book is clearly divided into two parts, its message is continuous the whole way through: preaching cannot be easily defined or explained by a simple doable, human-initiated system. Part one details the realities of preaching and covers a wide span of topics: the biblical and historical basis for preaching, analysis of the contemporary culture, the importance for the preacher to understand him-or herself, and the proposed 360-degree model of preaching. This takes into account of all these factors, especially the organic relationship between the Trinity, the preacher, and the hearers. Part two develops the `Preaching SWIM' as a model that incarnates the 360-degree dynamic. Each phase of the five stages of the sermon, though definitely more hands-on, stays true to the author's thesis of integrating all the disciplines of the preacher towards true spirituality. The model is simple but not superficial, and as a metaphor, it illustrates important aspects of preaching that will assist preachers in their lifelong as well as weekly journey of preparing a sermon.
Author's Distinctive Contribution
On many levels 360-Degree Preaching is a necessary addition to preaching literature.

Format: Paperback
This book on preaching is a welcome addition to the growing body of knowledge in field of homiletics. It is completely accessible, easily read and yet challenging. It is of value for both the novice and the seasoned preachers.
Divided into two sections, the first is an integrative review of the homiletical landscape - both historical and current day. The dialogue with the giants of the field are of great value in addressing the changing role of the preacher in the post-Modern age. Quicke examines the power of the scripture and the place of preaching in these changing times.
In the second section, Quick introduces a model of preaching as swimming in a river. This concept is initially off-putting, like jumping into cool river or lake. As with immersion, the body soon adapts, so it is with preaching swim paradigm. The mind adapts, the concept becomes more fluid and comfortable, indeed refreshing. His phases of sermon development and delivery provides an important resource and an excellent tool for all involved in the preaching art.
Finally, after describing the phases of sermonic design and delivery, Quicke surprisingly jumps in the River himself and supplies a wonderul concluding sermon as an example of his craft.
This book worth jumping into. It offers insightful hope for the work of Proclamation and practical helps on rejuvenating the ministry of the Word.

Overall this book was very helpful towards my outlook on preaching and my development in sermon crafting. There were moments where the book was dull, but it evened out with some incredible portions of insight. I loved that the author constantly emphasized the importance of the Holy Spirit's work in our preparation and venture in exegesis, hermeneutics and homiletics.
