Description

One of today s greatest preacher-theologians engages one of the twentieth century's greatest teacher-theologians on the meaning of preaching.
Readers of William H. Willimon s many books have long found there the influence of Karl Barth, probably the most significant theologian of the twentieth century. In this new book Willimon explores that relationship explicitly by engaging Barth s work on the pitfalls and problems, glories and grandeur of preaching the Word of God. The Swiss theologian, says the author, expressed one of the highest theologies of preaching of any of the great theologians of the church. Yet too much of Barth s understanding of preaching lies buried in the Church Dogmatics and other, sometimes obscure, sources. Willimon brings this material to light, introducing the reader to Barth s thought, not just on the meaning, but the practice of preaching as well."
