Preaching: The Art of Narrative Exposition

Format: Digital
, 2006
ISBN: 9780801012907


The challenge of contemporary preaching is packaging a message that holds the attention and touches the hearts of those who listen—while offering biblical substance in the process. Many preachers long to bring exposition and narrative together in a style that leads to transcendent moments. Calvin Miller has preached and equipped preachers for decades. In Preaching, he offers a volume of helpful insights for pastors and homiletics students to deliver the heart of the Gospel via the Jesus-approved vessel of compelling storytelling.

The Logos edition of this work on preaching is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and the wealth of resources in your digital library.
