Item Description...
Overview
In this one-volume resource kit, Jensen helps preachers use visual images creatively and responsibly. How, how much, when, what equipment, use of teams, relationship to exegesis, different varieties of images, sources - all the essential topics and concerns are addressed here. Jensen first discusses how vital, if controversial, image making has always been in Christian tradition and then demonstrates how preaching with images is both profoundly traditional and necessary to contemporary proclamation. His work combines practical advice with religious reflection to enable preachers to help their congregations envision the Word anew. The accompanying CD-ROM contains not only the full text of the book and helpful study guide, but links to the most helpful Websites and Web-based sources of images.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great start, poor finish  Aug 3, 2009
Richard Jensen does a good job of helping to see the issues involved in using images in worship. He traces the issue throughout church history and examines the iconoclastic controversies of the Eastern church and the Reformation. He writes like a theologian/historian, which can be good and bad. He is not guilty of leaving out anything from the discussion, but it can be dry at times.

I'm less impressed with the practical part of his book. It consists of barely digested responses to questions posed to preachers using images in their craft. While there is good information there, he samples very few preachers and does very little to interact with their work. The enclosed CD-ROM includes the full text of the book as well as several images.

He tends toward the modern art side of things, which does little to communicate with me, but it might work for some. I would pick up this book for the theological and historical discussion and skim over the rest for the salient points.
