--Michael Pasquarello has written a 'must read' book articulating a Trinitarian vision for preaching. His compelling argument is richly informed by traditional biblical hermeneutics, creedal history understood as storied attestation of the witness of Scripture, and liturgical theology and practice considered as embodied performance of the Bible's divine narrative. Here is a clear summons to the church to abandon all lesser homiletic aims and to prayerfully and faithfully proclaim the holy gospel to the glory of God.-- --Charles L. Bartow, Princeton Theological Seminary --Like all of Michael Pasquarello's work, his newest book not only upholds the classical Christian tradition but also breathes new vitality into it. In an era in which preaching is reduced to persuasive communication, Pasquarello reminds us that the Christian message has a content that originates in and gives expression to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.-- --Richard Lischer, Duke Divinity School --One of the refreshing things about this fine book by Michael Pasquarello is that, when he thinks about the ministry of preaching, he is not afraid to measure the breadth historically or plumb the depths theologically. Pasquarello has written this book like a good sermon--faithfully, thoughtfully, prayerfully, and with a profound word to speak. We are in his debt.-- --Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology --Boldly challenging homiletical accommodation to American culture, Pasquarello seeks to change the subject of preaching from method and 'marketing' to the Triune God, who is the source and goal of our speech. A welcome theological vision of preaching.-- --Charles L. Campbell, Columbia Theological Seminary --Christian Preaching brings together two disciplines that have sadly grown apart such that they almost developed irreconcilable differences--preaching and theology. Pasquarello offers a brilliant critique of theology as technique and draws on the theology and sermons of Irenaeus, Augustine, Luther, Wesley, and others, convincingly demonstrating that effective, pragmatic preaching requires substantive theological engagement (and vice versa). This book accomplishes its purpose so well that it should be used not only in preaching courses but also in basic theology courses. No preacher should be let loose on a congregation without passing through Pasquarello's Christian Preaching.-- --D. Stephen Long, Marquette University Mike Pasquarello III (PhD, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) is Granger E. and Anna A. Fisher Professor of Preaching at Asbury Theological Seminary. He is the author of Sacred Rhetoric: Preaching as a Theological and Pastoral Practice of the Church.
