Item Description...
"Our people desire and deserve effective preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ," writes Stephen Chapin Garner, a playwright, actor, and pastor whose passion is teaching pastors first-person narrative. Getting into Character shows pastors how to utilize this innovative homiletic tool, which combines biblical truth with a refreshingly engaging style. Filled with practical advice, this book equips pastors to deliver biblically-based, dramatically skillful sermons--without being an actor. If pastors become too predictable in the pulpit, effectiveness is lost. Garner outlines the pros and cons of narrative while advocating for balance. "A preacher's ability to command several different styles of delivery helps to make the sermon moment more dynamic and memorable," Garner writes. His sketch of the art of narrative preaching includes: The Power and Problem of First-Person Narrative Preaching Overcoming Resistance and Apprehension Understanding Dramatic Monologue Studying, Writing, and Getting Into Character The Power of Biblical Story "First-person narrative preaching can be a powerful sermonic pitch that allows the Word of God to unexpectedly strike and stick in the hearts and minds of our people," Garner writes. Getting into Character is helpful for pastors and seminary students looking to expand their styles and pastors who want to perfect narrative and storytelling.
