Preaching At The Crossroads
How The World – And Our Preaching – Is Changing
By David J. Lose
What People Are Saying
"David Lose is a wise and experienced guide for the church as it walks the line between Christian tradition and the emerging postmodern world. He looks the most serious questions in the eye and does not flinch—questions the tradition raises for postmodernism and questions that postmoderns put to tradition and preaching. Spontaneous combustion occurs igniting fires that bring warmth and light to the pulpit."
—Ronald Allen, Professor of Preaching and Gospels and Letters, Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis
"David Lose provides a brilliant cultural GPS for preachers who need help navigating the often bewildering claims of a post-Christian world. This essential book maps the subtle contours of the ground and charts clear and helpful paths for preaching."
—Paul Scott Wilson, Professor of Homiletics, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto
"No one thinks more clearly or writes more effectively about the place of preaching in a postmodern, secular, pluralistic world than does David Lose. This book shows a firm grasp of contemporary philosophy, biblical hermeneutics, and the challenges of digital culture. What is perhaps most impressive about this volume, however, is that, 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, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology
