By S. McDonald on December 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
This exceptional book will be a rich resource for pastors wanting to reach their congregations in a fresh way. Rather than discussing preaching in general or even a specific approach to preaching, it focuses on a new way of engaging the biblical text for preaching. It combines the authors' critical acumen, creative imagination, and pastoral discernment to present contemporizing restatements of scripture, speaking timeless truths in modern speech. In describing their "incarnational translation," the authors invite readers to imagine what the text might have looked like if produced in the preacher's own culture, time, and place. Drawing on translation theory, genre studies, and recent hermeneutical theory, they offer both a comprehensive theory of incarnational translation and a set of specific guidelines and examples for carrying it out.

Should we want to reach the people of wisdom and understanding , we need the Proverb and to explain the wisdom we need Parable as well. Very viable and reliable book.
