Stale Bread?John Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
The title of Richard Littledale’s book refers to the fare that passes for sermons week after week in many of our churches. He has written this “Practical Handbook for Reading the Story” with a view to making homilies more lively, more compelling and more relevant. He argues particularly for “narrative” preaching, the use of different voices from different standpoints to bring the richness of the Bible stories more powerfully alive. The sermon should be experienced as well as heard; it should be an event. He gives numerous practical examples drawn from both Testaments of how to enliven an otherwise dull and predictable sermon. This handbook, which pulls no punches, is a realistic and readable guide for preachers and for all those whose job it is to make manifest the Word.
