PREACHING LIKE PAUL, Homiletical Wisdom for Today by James W. Thompson
In contrast to the widely popular interest in narrative styles, Professor Thompson believes Paul's letters offer a different and valid model for preaching today. He clearly demonstrates how the manner of preaching used in the pre-Christian culture of Paul is both appropriate and effective in our contemporary post-Christian culture. Unlike most books on preaching, this book does not focus on homiletic technique, but instead on the goal of preaching-a needed missing component in contemporary homiletic discussion. Because Paul's letters are essentially sermons delivered to communities in differing situations, they provide an important witness and model not only for the individual sermon, but also to the larger purpose of preaching.
James W. Thompson is Professor of New Testament Abilene Christian University.
