Becoming a Living SermonBeyond spoken words, what is it that really helps preachers get their message across? Seasoned pastor and preaching professor David Day explores the ways in which preachers may embody their messages in their own person; in the words they use; through the use of objects, pictures, literature, and drama; and in the response of their audience.An eloquent and compelling volume suitable for communicators from a broad range of Christian denominations, it offers a practical workbook of ideas that preachers can begin using in their very next sermon.FEATURES Contains many helpful examples, case studies, excerpts from real addresses and two or three exercises in each chapter Great as a classroom supplementary textbook Books on preaching are full of good advice (writes Day). This book is bursting with good ideas and inspiration, but I would not call it "advice." It is far too refreshing and amusing to be called advice. With a practical array of shalts and shalt nots, both the experienced preacher and the learner will be spurred to hone their art: not just that of delivering communication but of enabling transformation. When it comes to preaching, Day is keen to communicate propositions through pictures and theory through experience. "Embodying the Word" does not simply describe how to do it, it embodies the technique itself through countless examples and illustrations.
