Where have all the prophets gone? And why do preachers seem to shy away from prophetic witness?
Astute preacher Leonora Tisdale considers these vexing questions while providing guidance and encouragement to pastors who want to recommit themselves to the task of prophetic witness. With a keen sensitivity to pastoral contexts, Tisdale’s work is full of helpful suggestions and examples to help pastors structure and preach prophetic sermons, considered by many to be one of the most difficult tasks pastors are called to undertake.
“A rich and welcome reflection on the nature of preaching. Enormously instructive [and] energizing.”

“In Prophetic Preaching Nora Tisdale is at her best.”
