The Witness of Preaching by Tom Long
This thorough revision of this classic text is even clearer and more helpful than the first edition. Long has updated the language; expanded the key chapter on biblical exegesis, incorporating many additional examples of textual interpretation; and has included more examples of sermon forms, illustrations, and conclusions. He continues to critically engage the best thinkers in the field of homiletics, bringing into the conversation both important new voices and the latest works of those who appeared in the first edition. In addition, he addresses some of the new forces at work, such as the use of video clips and PowerPoint in sermons.
