ISBN: 9780801092268


A pastor’s role in shaping worship is vital. But what if preaching isn’t just one part of worship? What if preaching is worship? In Preaching as Worship, veteran preacher Michael J. Quicke encourages those who preach to open their eyes afresh to glorious big-picture worship—grounded in Trinitarian theology and focused on the pivotal role of Scripture as it directs gathered worship for community formation—urging them to restore worship as an encounter with God. This unique and insightful book offers a clear call for preachers to rethink their worship responsibilities and the importance of preaching—for the sake of their church members and their God.

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.

Praise for the Print Edition

Michael Quicke’s winsome and insightful exploration of preaching as an integral component and reflection of Trinitarian worship is a welcome contribution to thoughtful literature on both preaching and worship. For too long, one has been viewed as simply a prelude or culmination of the other. Quicke helps us understand how worship and preaching function organically and holistically to honor the persons of the Godhead who also comes to us as one.
