Dr. Edwards wrote Effective First Person Biblical Preaching to help you discover a creative way to reach people who tune out traditional sermons. A large portion of the Bible is narrative. This fact, coupled with our culture’s fascination with story (as evidenced by its ever-increasing consumption of television, movies, and DVDs), presents the preacher with a tremendous opportunity to communicate powerful, life-changing truth in a way that is biblically honoring and culturally relevant.
In first-person biblical preaching, the preacher enters into the story via one of the characters, bringing the biblical text to life in the imaginations of the congregation. After making a case for this type of sermon, Kent Edwards takes the reader step-by-step through the process of crafting a dynamic first-person sermon that is faithful to the text. Along the way, he gives numerous examples, answers practical questions, and identifies pitfalls to avoid. He addresses both the exegetical task and the homiletical task as they relate to this approach.
