All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
Preaching in Black and White is the first attempt to bring together a noted black preacher and white preacher to interact on the dynamics of pulpit ministry and what can be learned from each other. Readers are invited to pull up a chair and listen in to a conversation between the two authors as they discuss the context in which African-American preaching has developed, the similarities and differences in styles of preaching in the two communities, and how they go about preparing and delivering a sermon. Humor and stories punctuate the dialogue including the stories of Dr. Bailey's receiving a beating from the police in California and how forgetting the second point in his sermon brought the house down with laughter.
Features include: -- Two illustrative sermons on the same text about Zacchaeus by a white preacher and a black preacher-- Audio CD featuring signature sermon from E. K. Bailey, "Testing of a Tax Collector"-- Annotated bibliography of preaching resources-- Biographical section introducing noted black preachers-- Black -and- white photographs
