  • Honest to God Preaching: Talking Sin, Suffering, and Violence

    Honest to God Preaching: Talking Sin, Suffering, and Violence

    Brent A. Strawn focuses on the importance of honesty in preaching, especially around three challenging Old Testament themes: sin, suffering, and violence. He makes the case that preaching honestly about these topics is critical in the church today. Without honesty regarding them, there is no way forward to reconciliation, health, and recovery. He frames this work specifically for working preachers, to help them speak to these thorny themes with depth and clarity.

    Hiding in the Pews: Shining Light on Mental Illness in the Church

    In 2012, Steve Austin, then a pastor, nearly died by suicide.

  • Preaching the Headlines: Possibilities and Pitfalls

    Preaching the Headlines: Possibilities and Pitfalls

    Preaching the Headlines reframes preaching as an ongoing conversation between the modern world and the world of the biblical text. Preachers use what they know about life as a bridge to the text, while life in the text provides the bridge back to faith in the contemporary world. The goal of the book is to provide a process to aid preachers in doing theological reflection on the everyday world as an integral part of sermon development.

    Death by Baptism: Sacramental Liberation in a Culture of Fear

    Gifted storyteller Frank G. Honeycutt calls on his many years of pastoral experience to examine one of the most stunning (and overlooked) theological claims of the New Testament: how baptism radically unites followers of Christ in his death and resurrection.
