The Folly of Preaching: Models and Methods
Michael P. Knowles (editor)
The Folly of Preaching contains a wealth of theoretical and practical insights into preaching from some of today’s best-known preachers, scholars, and homiletics teachers. Many of these contributions derive their inspiration from Paul’s letters to the church at Corinth, in which the apostle vigorously defends both the message of the gospel and his own manner of proclaiming it. Several of the twelve exemplary sermons rounding out The Folly of Preaching continue reflecting on the key theme of grace amid weakness and need, expounding passages from Paul’s Corinthian correspondence. Of all the current preaching books available, few come close to the compilation here of eminent figures in contemporary preaching.
