Will Willimon presents a bold theology of preaching.
As they head home after a church service, most people typically have at least a brief conversation about whether or not you, the pastor, gave a good sermon. If week after week you get a thumbs up…you might need to shake things up a bit. In Preachers Dare, Will Willimon presents a bold theology of preaching, emphasizing preaching as a distinctively theological endeavor that begins with and is enabled by God. God speaks, preachers dare to speak the speech of God, and the church dares to listen. Willimon shows how by moving from the biblical text to the contemporary context, you can dare to speak up for God so that God might speak today. With fresh biblical insights, creativity, and pointed humor, Willimon gives today’s preachers and congregations encouragement to speak with the God who has so graciously and effusively spoken to us.
