Welcome to the Preachers’ Book Club where we read and discuss the latest influential resources related to homiletics. The two books for 2019 include Homiletics and Hermeneutics: Four Views on Preaching Today (Baker Academic, 2018) and Preaching with Empathy: Crafting Sermons in a Callous Culture (Abingdon, 2018). This club, sponsored by the Haddon W. Robinson Center for Preaching, is funded by a Lilly Endowment preaching grant.
By committing to this peer-learning group, you will receive two copies of each book and a learning covenant to do the following three activities: (NB: If you do not fulfill your covenant, you will pay back in full the cost of the books and shipping.)
1) Read the book with a ministry colleague and discuss it together.
2) Send in a 2-3 paragraph (single-spaced) response to the book (for each book by the due date).
3) (Optional) Prepare a sermon employing 1-3 principles that you learned from the book and have a colleague evaluate the effectiveness of this sermon (one sermon for each book by the due date).
We look forward to having you join!
