Bringing together some of the finest voices in contemporary homiletics to examine the different forms as well as the status of narrative preaching, What's the Shape of Narrative Preaching? will give readers much to ponder on this impact topic. Teachers of preaching have long recognized that the Bible is told in story form. Yet the responses to the topic of narrative preaching have varied over the years, from singing its praises to outright rejection. The homiletical landscape is always changing, but what many thought might be a fad is still being discussed in the seminaries and practiced in many a pulpit. What's the Shape of Narrative Preaching? asks: What exactly is narrative preaching? What does it mean to be a narrative preacher? Is narrative preaching at odds with exposition? What are the biblical precedents for such an approach? What kinds of theology undergird narrative theory? What is the role of narrative preaching in a time of rampant biblical illiteracy? How does narrative preaching help to shape congregational life? Intended for both seminarians and well-practiced preachers, What's the Shape of Narrative Preaching? includes essays from more than a dozen well-respected homileticians, taking readers through the past, present, and possible future impact of narrative preaching.
