Product Description

Preachers can proclaim God’s grace in a divisive culture.

When facing complicated aspects of pastoral ministry, you quickly realize that sometimes seminary has done little to equip you with the tools you need. For instance, amidst divisions in our culture, preaching has become perilous. You long to speak a powerful word of good news but struggle with how to name God’s action in our world today. Getting to God demonstrates how you can proclaim God’s grace by building on the theological grammar and preaching method proposed by Paul Scott Wilson. This book operates on several levels, showing you how to contextualize a theologically rich approach to preaching, expanding the horizon of ministry while helping you with the vital practice of learning to look for and name God’s active presence in our world.

Preachers can proclaim God’s grace in a divisive culture.

God shows up, surprises us, and catches us off guard in offbeat settings and contexts. We name these saving encounters “gospel.” Naming God’s action in our world can be challenging for many today. Divisions in our culture make preaching feel perilous. Preachers turn to the biblical text and long to speak a powerful word of good news but many struggle with how to name God’s grace amidst complex contextual issues and relational dynamics. Seminary does little to equip pastors for this important aspect of ministry. This book demonstrates how preachers can proclaim God’s grace in our world today by building on the theological grammar and preaching method proposed by Paul Scott Wilson. This book operates on several levels, showing preachers how to contextualize a theologically rich approach to preaching, expanding the horizon of ministry for pastors who might not have experience in the contexts discussed in the book, and it equips pastors with the vital practice of learning to look for and name God’s active presence in our world.
