Preaching at the Crossroads
How the World -- and Our Preaching -- Is Changing
by David J. Lose
"In a crowded marketplace of sermonic gimmicks and quick-fixes, Lose holds instead to a vision of preaching that is profoundly theological and centered on the gospel."
—Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology

"While I am sometimes daunted by the challenges of this strange new world, I have also come to take great delight in it, reveling in its mystery and energized by the opportunities it presents."
"David Lose provides a brilliant cultural GPS for preachers who need help navigating the often bewildering claims of a post-Christian world." Read what Paul Scott Wilson and others are saying about the new book.

I invite you to consider how your preaching throughout this season invites us to dwell in the mood of each season, first anticipating, then celebrating, and finally reveling in the story of God.
David Lose has done a great service to preachers. We must preach prayerfully – contemplatives who open our eyes to the rapid changes around us.
Rather than bemoaning the exodus of ‘young people’ from Church, Lose takes a much broader, multi-layered look into all the ways the church is losing ground in people’s lives.
One thing I’d add is that effective preaching is not just a matter of knowing one’s audience and the mindsets that govern them. While this is helpful, it’s not enough.

David Lose‘s book reminded me of the privilege that it is to serve as a pastor, and reading it got me excited again about preaching.
