Named “Book of the Year” by PreachingToday.com, Folly, Grace, & Power is a reminder of the sacredness of the “job” of being a preacher, as well as a how-to that reveals the key to speaking powerfully on God’s behalf. Folly, Grace, and Power is a must-read for pastors, seminarians, and lay leaders charged with the task of preaching God’s word.
When you stand before your congregation, what do you hope to accomplish when you preach the Word? If people have Bibles and the freedom to read and pray on their own—why do they need you? In short, what do you bring to the table?
Why does one sermon have a powerful effect on the audience while another falls flat? Why should listeners heed what the preacher says? Is human language adequate for facilitating an encounter with God? Read Folly, Grace & Power and rediscover the sacred challenge of speaking for God.
