Preachers sometimes shy away from expositing books of the Bible because they suspect that approach is good for teaching theology to mature . This concern grows when pastors contemplate preaching an Old Testament book.

Preachers sometimes shy away from expositing books of the Bible because they suspect that approach is good for teaching theology to mature Christians, but bad for helping unbelievers understand the gospel. How could a study of the life of Abraham or a series in Haggai make the gospel clear, Sunday after Sunday? Do we simply slap an evangelistic trailer onto the end of the sermon?

Using the findings of historical Jesus studies, William Brosend asks, what is the rhetoric that characterized the preaching of Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels, and how may today's preaching benefit from it?

This book The Preaching of Jesus reveals four distinct aspects to the rhetoric of Jesus: 1) dialogical, or preaching in response to challenges and questions; 2) proclamatory, making bold and authoritative statements; 3) self-referential (mostly found in John), speaking about himself directly; 4) figurative, using illustrations and metaphor. Brosend spends one chapter on each of these aspects, closing each chapter with a sermon that models the particular aspect in play by a well-known preacher.

Using the findings of historical Jesus studies, William Brosend asks, what is the rhetoric that characterized the preaching of Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels, and how may today's preaching benefit from it? This book for preachers and students of preaching helps the reader see four distinct aspects of the rhetoric of Jesus: dialogical (preaching in response to challenges and questions); proclamatory (making bold and authoritative statements); occasionally self-referential (though less so than in the Fourth Gospel); and persistently figurative (illustrating his message through metaphor). Brosend spends one chapter on each of these methods, closing each chapter with a sermon that models that approach and his analysis of it. Sample sermons are by well-known preachers including Fred Craddock, Michael Curry, Tom Long, and Barbara Brown Taylor. Brosend concludes with the implications for modern preaching and a sermon of his own.

I really enjoyed most of this book, but the last section left me feeling quite uneasy. The premise - that preachers need to model themselves after Jesus - is compelling. The author's four guidelines - 1) be dialogical (be relevant), 2) be proclamatory (don't be wishy-washy), 3) be only occasionaly self-referential (the sermon isn't about you); and be persistently figurative (use imagery to communicate) - are very helpful.

However, for the fourth point the author goes to an extreme... he recommends something that 1) I think is inappropriate and 2) calls in to question the integrity of his whole book. He encourages preachers to make up examples as complete fictions (he calls them "fabrications") but to tell them in the sermons as if they are actual events. (See, for example, page 143-144 and his example of the character "Amy" in a sermon. The "Amy" story is not couple of sentences as a simple example but two long paragraphs, full of details, and it was the moving closer to his sermon.)

It's one thing to change a name or place to preserve anonymity -- and one might accept the literary license to blend two people or experiences into one for the sake of homiletic clarity -- but I am really troubled by his assertion that it's perfectly acceptable to misrepresent completely fictional events or people as "real" in a sermon in order to make one's point. To quote Brosend, "Amy was a complete fabrication but I needed a closing story about the importance and power of seeking." His argument is essentially that "the end justifies the means."

Once the preacher decides he can pass off fiction as reality to "make one's point" where does this end? - in pastoral counseling? in a church council meeting? We have enough half-truths or outright lies in our lives these days - what with advertising trying to sell us things we don't really need and no one trusting what government officials or corporate spokespeople say. I don't like the idea of bringing that attitude into the pulpit - that to "make one's point" we'll make up fictions and sell them as fact. Figurative, imaginative preaching is great but I think -- in this specific point -- that Brosend's crossed a line that we should not cross when preaching.

And so, after getting to the end of the book, I now wonder -- what else in his book was fiction that he passed off as fact? I'm left feeling manipulated... and I can only give a half-hearted recommendation for the book.

One of the best books I've read on the subject of the Preaching of Jesus. Clear and well written.

A disclaimer right up front. The author of this book is my brother! And I could not be more proud. As a scholar and teacher, the author is known by many as excellent. And after many years of preaching himself, he has a special sense of what the preacher needs to make herself aware in sermon preparation. I am purchasing copies of the book for all of the preachers I know. The book needs to become required reading for all seminarians planning to preach and recommended for all current clergy in the pulpit. I encourage all of us in the pews to share this book with the preachers in our lives.
