Product Description

A new model for post-apologetic preaching in a pluralistic world.

A New Model for Post-Apologetic Preaching in a Pluralistic World.



The relationship between preaching and the public sphere has long been
debated. Three different theological approaches tend to dominate the
discussion. In different ways, these approaches take into account the
movement from the modern mindset of the mid-to-late 20th century to the
emerging postmodern worldview.

In The Sermon without End, authors Allen & Allen thoughtfully
offer a fourth option, one that in their view has not received much
attention, but which offers a distinct and especially helpful
perspective. It is a new and dynamic conversational model, reaching
beyond the earlier work of Tillich and Tracy. In this homiletical
framework, conversation takes place in multiple directions between the
text or tradition and the world today. It is preaching in conversation,
not just toward but with voices from the public sphere.

The book provides a solid foundation for understanding this
post-apologetic approach, but it importantly goes on to offer practical,
real-pulpit guidance for implementation in a preaching ministry. It is a
book for both scholars and practicing preachers who wish to reach
people in meaningful and significant ways, and in ways that make sense
for today.

"This book deserves to be widely applauded. It provides a post-apologetic lens to illuminate the history of various modern homiletical discourses even as it envisions a postmodern one. ... I strongly recommend this book for homileticians, preachers, and lay people alike." - Duse Lee, Boston University School of Theology - Reviewed in Homiletic

A new model for post-apologetic preaching in a pluralistic world.

Sermons as conversations that take place in multiple directions between Scripture and traditions and the world today…that’s the basis of a new and dynamic conversational preaching model suggested by Ron Allen and Wes Allen in The Sermon without End. Not only do the authors provide a solid foundation for understanding this new approach to preaching, they also offer practical, real-pulpit guidance for implementation. The book provides skill- and confidence-building advice for those who wish to reach people in meaningful and significant ways—and in ways that make sense for today. A leading edge resource on this emerging conversational model for preaching for both scholars and practicing preachers alike.
