Learn to use a central, controlling image in every sermon.

Hollywood is to thank for many extremely effective sermons. So are fast food commercials and the lyrics to chart-topping songs. Where better to find examples of how to communicate through the use of compelling images? A dominant image repeated throughout a sermon helps to unify and communicate the central thought. In Preaching in Pictures, the third book in the Artistry of Preaching Series, author Peter Jonker offers exercises designed to help you find strong, controlling images for the message you want to deliver. So butter some popcorn and get ready to find inspiration for your next sermon from your all-time, favorite flick!

 “Good preaching isn’t just the dissemination of information; it is a conduit of Spirit-empowered formation. Such formative preaching doesn’t convince the intellect; it captures the imagination. A controlling image has the power to do just this—to capture the imagination. Peter Jonker invites preachers to understand and to effectively use controlling images for formation of the hearer. This great book is erudite and accessible, theoretically grounded and yet intensely practical, complete with exercises. I’ll be pointing preachers to it from now on.”
—James K.A. Smith, author of Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation

“Preaching in Pictures opened eyes of my imagination. I can’t wait to write my next sermon.”
—Heidi DeJonge Pastor, Westside Fellowship Christian Reformed Church, Kingston, Ontario

“Peter Jonker offers preachers practical ways to connect the gospel in the hearts of listeners, with a wealth of helpful examples. This is a fresh and welcome perspective, just the book for preachers whose sermons have reached their shelf life and are in need of new energy.”
—John Michael Rottman, Professor of Preaching Calvin Theological Seminary

“Sane, balanced, assured--but also strikingly insightful—Peter Jonker's writing is a sheer gift to anyone interested in eventful preaching. Every page is worth pondering. Jonker writes with great verve and authority.”
—Cornelius Plantinga, Jr., Author of Reading for Preaching: The Preacher in Conversation with Storytellers, Biographers, Poets, and Journalists
