They Like to Never Quit Praisin' God: The Role of Celebration in Preaching

They Like to Never Quit Praisin' God: The Role of Celebration in Preaching Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This work starts admittedly where I left off, and carries the topic of celebration well beyond. The author has explored and analyzed and come up with crucial insights and needed terminology with which to further the scholarly discussion and increase the understandings needed in the classroom.... Frank Thomas has contributed much to the meeting of this need, probing celebration to new depths.... This book adds to the corpus of serious scholarship available to instructors for the purposes of a more powerful pulpit, in an era of desperate need in the field". — Henry H. Mitchell, from the Foreword

Here is a book that will change the course of preaching in the twenty-first century. Through the lens of African American preaching, Frank Thomas sheds light on what is "good" preaching — and on what methods can be employed to achieve it.

Celebration in preaching is an important component of any preaching that can be considered "good". Thomas explores the theology, dynamics, design, and guidelines for celebrative preaching and provides sample sermon illustrations as well.

Synopsis:

Striking at the heart of the hunger for good preaching, this volume offers an insightful examination of preaching that mixes theory with experience. Rooted in the African American experience, it addresses methodology and theology in creating an inspiring model for ministers and congregations.
