To hell with being practical!


I know, I know. It was just a moment of weakness, Kyle. I hereby go back to renouncing all things practical. ;-)

I just finished it as well. I agree that it would be nice if there was an appendix or chapter on what he has found to work/not work. I am experimenting with it at ou r church, which is new and in formation, which makes it easier to try. I wonder how an established church, with pews and all, would make it work with their architecture already fixed for speaching.

I heard about this book a month ago or so. It sounded very interesting. I'll be "preaching" November 13th and 20th while my pastor is on Sabatical. I'm a little scared to be sharing for 30-40 minutes from the pulpit for the first time. Maybe I'll just go with what I know works. On the other hand, perhaps it would be helpful to the church if we tried something new!

Nice blog!

Thanks for your comments on Preaching Re-Imagined. I especially agree that it would have been helpful if Doug would have interviewed and inquired about how other people are incorporating interaction into preaching. You are right as well about the lack of practical suggestions. He just tells us to consult people in planning and give some discussion time after the sermon. I have just reviewed it on my blog as well:
