Today, ministry students and experienced ministers alike face the same challenge: how to preach biblically in a post-Christian culture. God calls each of us-whether student struggling to find a unique preaching voice, or veteran trying to rediscover the relevancy of the sermon-to preach the truth of Scripture. But it is not always easy to provide meaningful and provocative commentary on today's social, political, and religious issues. By examining biblical narratives from their roots-as political, social, and religious commentaries on the issues of their time-From Narrative to Homily equips preachers at all levels of experience to preach the truth of God's Word. Offering valuable information and insight, this book encourages preachers to develop sermons that challenge their congregations to think critically and respond biblically to the many difficulties they face. Preachers today are challenged to address the wide range of difficulties and complex issues faced by the church. From Narrative to Homily delivers a fresh perspective and understanding of the narratives on which we base our sermons, empowering them to revive the church and transform our world.
