drew too muchtoo much other homiletics writers without providing fresh content I think this is a fair critiue but I think Eswine does an able job at synthesizing together these precursors I especially appreciate Eswine s admonition to preach #about those areas of the bible we postmoderns #those areas of the Bible we postmoderns to be sueamish about such as the conuest of Canaan the Book of Judges and Hell The one thing I will say is that this book has a lot of terminology in it and it might have been useful to include a glossary at the back In many respects this reminded me of a math textbook from high school Eswine offers solid explanations and suggestions for crafting a sermon but it s much better to do the work of writing a sermon alongside reading this book I have really mixed feelings about this book certain chapters are almost indispensable reading for preachers while others were dry and difficult to slog through Additionally the title is somewhat misleading and the chapters were not organized wellThe notion of preaching to a post everything world is very compelling to me and I picked up this book in the hope that Zack Eswine would thoughtfully engage the realities of our postmodern climate why preaching seems to be an art that is loving it s relevancy to oung people today and how to change that tide There are moments that lean in this direction but much of the book admittedly feels like a rote handbook for sermon prep particularly the first thirdThis is not to say that the book is worthless I did give it 3 stars as I do plan on keeping it on my shelf Eswine includes extremely thoughtful chapters on how to talk about war in the bible in an age that is terrified of terrorism how to speak about hell and how to prepare for preaching like a sage These chapters were profoundly helpful and made me wish the rest of the book was up to Le Eswine offers a way of preaching that embraces biblical exposition in missional terms Recognizing all of the different cultural situations in which the gospel must be preached he gives preachers practical advice on preaching in a global co.
