Item Description...
There is no more trusted mentor of preachers in North American Christianity today than William H. Willimon. The author of over sixty books, a frequent preacher and teacher in pastors' schools and events, Willimon has earned a following as one of the people to whom preachers turn more often than any other. Turner and Malambri make Willimon's role as a mentor to preachers more available than ever. Both former students of Willimon's, they provide detailed and practical tools for learning from this "peculiar prophet." They offer samples of Willimon's sermons, and commentary on them by other leading preachers and homiliticians such as Tom Long and Peter Gomes. The point of this examination of Willimon's work is not simply to praise it, but to assess both its strengths and its weaknesses, and to help readers learn in the process how Willimon can be a model of what to do and--at times--what not to do in the pulpit. Written with the needs of practicing preachers in mind, this book will make a significant contribution, not only to understanding a great preacher, but also to preaching itself.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Recommended Read  Sep 15, 2006
I found this book very insightful. Reading sermons by a pastor who clearly takes the issue of discipleship seriously enough to produce sensible, accurate, and biblical discourse is very refreshing. Reading these sermons will unveil many long-accepted, church-constructed, social norms that have been rather insidious.

The editors have done a worthy task to select sermons topics that are cross-sectional representations as well phenomenological at the same time. In addition to this type of biblical discourse, this book offers serious critique on each sermon. Each critique deconstructs the sermon text to highlight the author's rationale in a way that is both flattering and helpful.

How I wish all pastors submitted themselves to such critique. I was discipled as a result of reading this book, and I submit that most others would be as well.
Too bad the analysis doesn't match the preaching  Feb 19, 2006
This book works from an interesting premise-take selected sermons by a noted and popular preacher about main themes in his work, then have someone write analysis. Some of the sermons are brilliant as in Easter is an Earthquake, the opening sermon and one of the best I've ever read. However the sermons are a bit uneven as is the analysis.

It's worth the price of the book-especially used- for the opening sermon. Recommend with reservations
