An extraordinary book on preaching from one of America's most revered and beloved homileticians.
Your next sermon isn’t something that can be postponed. And you wouldn’t be the first pastor who sometimes finds the ticking of a clock to be a prime motivator when preparing a sermon. In The End of Preaching, Thomas H. Troeger offers a new, practical approach to the task based on understanding the effect of preaching upon people and the world. Where does his approach begin? He explores the end—or the purpose of the sermon—as prayer. Troeger, who delivered the esteemed 2016 Beecher Lectures, gently reveals layer after layer of insight, providing instruction and inspiration not only for seminarians, but for seasoned pastors as well. This is a book to be studied and savored, and a wonderful gift to give to any of your preacher friends…or to yourself.
