Teachers of preaching have long recognized that the Bible is told in story form. Yet the responses to the topic of narrative preaching have varied over the years, from singing its praises to outright rejection. The homiletical landscape is always changing, but what many thought might be a fad is still being discussed in the seminaries and practiced in many a pulpit. Whats the Shape of Narrative Preaching? asks: What exactly is narrative preaching? What does it mean to be a narrative preacher? Is narrative preaching at odds with exposition? What are the biblical precedents for such an approach? What kinds of theology undergird narrative theory? What is the role of narrative preaching in a time of rampant biblical illiteracy? How does narrative preaching help to shape congregational life? Contributors include: Charles Rice, Ron Allen, Fred Craddock, Frank Thomas, Thomas Long, David Buttrick, Richard Eslinger, Barbara Lundblad, William McClain, Beverly Zink Sawyer, Thomas Troeger, Robin Meyers, David Schlafer, and Mike Graves.
