Preaching Through a Storm: Confirming the Power of Preaching in the Tempest of Church Conflict

Preaching Through a Storm: Confirming the Power of Preaching in the Tempest of Church Conflict Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book deals with the experience of the black church. But its insights are pertinent for all preaching traditions. It discloses both a high concept of preaching and a new dimension of pastoral care.

Synopsis:

The context was a building program for an urban congregation. The beginning bore no omens of controversy. But before long, both the pastor (the author) and the congregation found themselves in a storm that threatened the church's very existence and the pastor's future in ministry.It is common in this kind of storm that neither the preacher nor his flock will expect to hear from God. But the arresting message of this book is that it is often through the preaching itself that God speaks to the issues of conflict. It is through preaching that the issues are resolved, and neither the pastor nor the people are left unchanged.By example and by precept this book shows how to weather a storm in the only successful way--by preaching through it under the guiding hand of a compassionate God who knows our human anguish. This is a book you cannot afford to ignore. For, as one preacher puts it, you're either 'coming out of a storm, in a storm, or heading for a storm.'

Synopsis:

Drawing on his own experience in shepherding a church through a difficult building program, the author explains how to survive the storms of pastoral ministry spiritually and emotionally.
