Preaching John's Gospel: The World It Imagines
Edited by David Fleer, Dave Bland
This title from Fleer and Bland is again designed specifically for preachers. Combining essays from top scholars and sermons from respected homileticians, Preaching JohnÕs Gospel includes contributors from a wide variety of Mainline and Evangelical denominations who value the role of scripture in faith development and preaching.
Developed from the Rochester Sermon Seminar, the book is divided into two parts: The first includes essays on preaching the gospel of John, and is structured around the work of Gail OÕDayÕs guiding essay ÒPreaching with John: Preaching as an Act of Friendship.Ó
The second half of the book consists of ten sermons from specific texts that incorporate the theoretical underpinnings of the bookÕs first section. The essays and sermons are bound together by the same question: How can we draw our congregations into the world John has imagined for us?
