In this practical and insightful guide, one of the nation’s most respected preachers shows how to use the structure of Jesus’ parables to preach highly effective sermons. During the past decade, New Testament scholars have done fresh and exciting work on the style and function of Jesus’ stories. Now Eugene L. Lowry – in clear, step-by-step fashion-shows how he and other well-known preachers use and develop parables to create lively and interesting sermons.
Throughout its pages, How to Preach a Parable remains understandable and carefully grounded in biblical scholarship. Parable sermons from such outstanding preachers as Fred Craddock, Leander E. Keck, and Dennis M. Willis are included. The sermons are presented in workshop format, encouraging useful application of the book’s ideas.
