Each of the volumes in the 13-volume Fortress Press Homiletics Collection offers brief introductions to the basics of preaching from diverse perspectives. Never before have seminary students and pastors had such a solid homiletical tool to help them develop the insights, framework, and skills necessary for powerful, transformative preaching as the books in this collection. This collection contains practical guides for effective preaching with tips for preparing and delivering sermons that are meaningful and appropriate. These books will help preachers create sermons that fit the listeners, and the authors offer tips and ideas for biblical texts and topics of interests.
With the Fortress Press Homiletics Collection, you’ll explore the nuances of clear and effective communication, learn how to effectively use your voice and body in the act of preaching, and discover the strengths and weaknesses of particular sermon forms and structures. These authors also combine excellence in preaching with pastoral sensitivity, and write from the conviction that the Gospels contain not only words of salvation but also words of comfort and hope for grieving people.
The Fortress Press Homiletics Collection also contains valuable books on the specific challenges that come with preaching particular sections of Scripture. Bonnie Bowman Thurston weighs in on preaching from the Gospel of Mark, and renowned Johannine scholar Robert Kysar offers advice on preaching sermons from the Gospel of John. Brian C. Stiller’s volume teaches preachers how to align contemporary homiletic scholarship with postmodern assumptions, and uses the parables to illustrate how to preach to today’s culture.
