A new, transformative approach to corrective, creative, and prophetic preaching.
Interpretational creativity—author James Henry Harris says this is what pastors long for when communicating the promises of Scripture. In his newest book, Beyond the Tyranny of the Text, Harris recognizes preachers’ desires to experience a new sense of freedom in their preaching and offers a new theory of scriptural interpretation that stretches from preparation to proclamation. Both pastors and students of preaching will find his five-part method to be refreshing and liberating. Using the Book of Jonah as an example, Harris encourages readers to “get in front of the text” to understand preaching as a transformative enterprise.
