Publishers Description
If you're looking for imaginative reflections that take you right to the heart of the scriptures, the newest edition of CSS' popular "Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit" series is the perfect resource for you. Timothy Merrill offers 65 thought-provoking contemplations on Cycle C lectionary passages that draw out the biblical theme by relating it to aspects of modern life we have all experienced. This book is not only great for preaching illustrations and "sermon starters" -- it's also a wonderful source for inspiring devotional reading.
"Timothy Merrill has an eye for the offbeat and amusing anecdote that can grab a congregation's attention and bring a particular passage of scripture to life. Using the parable-based preaching style pioneered by Jesus, he cracks open biblical truths through tales of popcorn forks, fake fire, lopsided clay, and lipstick pistols. Whether you are looking for a fresh approach to a particular piece of scripture or a provocative story to jump-start a sermon, take a few minutes to mine this volume. You're sure to strike gold."
Henry Brinton
Senior Writer, "Homiletics"
"Bored with the "lectionary trail"? Timothy Merrill's serendipitous musings on life in the new millennium transform the weekly Word into fresh, lived journeys."
Sally Morgenthaler
Columnist for "Worship Leader" and "Rev." magazines
Author of "Worship Evangelism" and "The Uncharted Now"
"Merrill's metaphorical nuggets are excellent as guides for worship planning, teaching, or even personal meditation. They also can actually make you stop and think a bit."
Len Wilson
Media ministry consultant
Author of "Digital Storytellers" and "The Wired Church"
"Timothy Merrill understands the craft of preaching better than most preachers I know. We are all aware that the first sixty seconds of any sermon are the most important. This book will prove a vital aid and unique gift to any preacher who is serious about holding the congregation's attention and inviting a dynamic encounter with the word."
Alan Kimber
Senior Pastor, First United Methodist Church
Lodi, California
"Wow... where did Timothy Merrill get all this material? He clearly has searched far and wide -- and he manages to bring all these stories down to ground level, providing insight into the real issues facing those of us who inhabit the pews of churches. Merrill has a gift for bringing theological freight to events and occasions that most of us would pass right by, and I have found myself looking more carefully at the events of my own daily affairs as having theological implications, not to mention preaching implications."
Richard C. Stern
Associate Professor of Homiletics, St. Meinrad School of Theology
Co-author of "Savior on the Silver Screen"
Timothy F. Merrill is an ordained United Church of Christ minister and the Senior Editor of the preaching journal Homiletics. He has published numerous articles in the religious press and in academic journals such as "Westminster Theological Journal" and the" Patrisca and Byzantine Review," and he is the author of "Learning to Fall: A Guide for the Spiritually Clumsy" (Chalice Press). A graduate of Iliff School of Theology, Merrill pursued doctoral studies at Princeton Theological Seminary in the history of Christianity, and he has served churches in Colorado, Minnesota, and Oregon.
