This book is a collection of dramatic, participatory sermons, which involve members of the congregation in the act of preaching. These readings, dramas, and dialogue sermons are the results of experiments in "preaching with more than one voice" at David Steele's church in California.
Steele believes that, just as worship and hymn singing are community events, it is natural for the sermon itself to move out beyond the pulpit. When Steele and his congregation tried preaching together, they found themselves being touched by God's grace in an unusual way. In Steele's words they found themselves "in the midst of the Word".
Following the church year, these sermons are ideal for worship, study, or retreat settings, and they can be easily performed by anyone after a rehearsal or two.
