Item Description...
Overview
One of the most articulate interpreters of the Reformed tradition, John H. Leith is concerned about the reliance of mainline churches on such approaches as better management techniques and a quest for relevance as the means to halt membership decline. He reaffirms the Reformed tradition and calls upon the church to say what no one else can say. Leith writes that too often sermons are moral exhortations which can be delivered more effectively at Rotary or Kiwanis clubs. Many are political and economic judgments on society presented with greater wisdom and passion at political conventions. Other sermons offer therapies better provided by competent psychiatrists. He urges the church to use its only unique skill-the ability to interpret and apply the Word of God through sermons, teaching, and pastoral care.

Publishers Description

In the face of dramatic membership decline, John Leith calls on the church to say what no one else "can" say. Leith writes that too often sermons are moral exhortations which can be delivered more effectively at Rotary or Kiwanis clubs; or political and economic judgements on society presented with greater wisdom and passion at political conventions; or they offer therapies better provided by competent psychiatrists. He urges the church to use its only "unique" skill--the ability to interpret and apply the work of God through sermons, teaching, and pastoral care.
