Description:

This thorough revision of this classic text is even clearer and more helpful than the first edition. Long has updated the language, expanded the key chapter on biblical exegesis, incorporating many additional examples of textual interpretation, and has included more examples of sermon forms, illustrations, and conclusions. He continues to critically engage the best thinkers in the field of homiletics, bringing into the conversation both important new voices and the latest works of those who appeared in the first edition. In addition, he addresses some of the new forces at work, such as the use of video clips and PowerPoint in sermons. As in the first edition, Long allows the theological image of bearing witness to the gospel to govern and organize every aspect of the process of creating a sermon from beginning to end - from the interpretation of a biblical text to the oral delivery of the sermon. This book will be of value to both seminary students and the veteran preacher.
