How to successfully walk the tightrope of preaching when there are few agreed upon "facts."

Good preaching has always been a challenge, but cultural forces have made the challenge even greater. No longer do most of us agree on a common set of facts, as evidenced by comedian Stephen Colbert’s prescient coining of the word “truthiness” and Kellyanne Conway’s introduction of the phrase “alternative facts” into our vocabulary. Thanks, in part, to the proliferation of media outlets and the explosion of available entertainment sources, the pulpit has become a tightrope stretched between red and blue, Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals. But there is a net. Preaching Truth in the Age of Alternative Facts demonstrates how to proclaim honest, faithful, candid sermons in spite of social and political disagreements. It teaches you how to preach in a way that allows the church to be its best self—a place of commitment, engagement, acceptance, and compassion for all God’s children.
