SERMON: Dancing the Edge of Mystery by Eugene Lowry
An introductory-level textbook from one of the best-known preachers in the country, The Sermon: Dancing the Edge of Mystery offers preachers a well-shaped, imaginative, and delightfully spry overview of the sermon. The student learns of the revolution in homiletics of the past 25 years and is helped to understand the sermon in terms of the movement of time, place, shape, space, conflict, complication, and the "sudden shift" of the text. For students new to preaching, these dynamic movements are summed up in a ten-step process that moves speaker from preparation to presentation.
