Reading For Preaching
Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.
$3.99  *** Buy Now

In Reading for Preaching Cornelius Plantinga makes a singular claim: preachers who read fine writing will likely become deeper and defter preachers.

In his own winsome writing style Plantinga shows how a general reading program benefits preachers. First, he says, good reading generates delight, and the preacher who enters the world of delight goes with God. Good reading can also help tune the preacher’s ear for language — his or her primary tool. General reading can enlarge the preacher’s sympathies for people and situations that she or he had previously known nothing about. And, above all, the preacher who reads widely has the chance to become wise.

Though aimed especially at preachers, this beautifully written book will benefit anyone interested in the wisdom to be derived from reading.

Today is the birthday of the Inkling Charles Williams…

 
T.S. Eliot called Williams’s novels “supernatural thrillers.”

 
For some background on Williams, read Caleb Crain’s wonderful essay in The New Yorker earlier this year

Writes Crain:

“The jacket copy [of WAR IN HEAVEN], credited Williams with having written The Descent of the Dove: A Short History of the Holy Spirit in the Church, which—I learned when I got home to the Internet—Auden claimed to have re-read once a year. A resort to our bookshelves turned up more data. In the critical study ‘Later Auden,’ Edward Mendelson relays Auden’s report that he felt sanctified in Williams’s presence: ‘I felt transformed into a person who was incapable of doing or thinking anything base or unloving.’

 
Fortunately for readers, all of Charles Williams’s novels except one (The Greater Trumps) are available at bargain prices for Kindle!!!

This week’s bargain books on the theme
St. Paul (Click to learn more/purchase):

432118: We Preach Not Ourselves: Paul on Proclamation We Preach Not Ourselves: Paul on Proclamation

By Michael P. Knowles / Brazos Press

$2.99 – Save 89%!!!

Holding up Paul as a model for contemporary pastors and seminarians, Knowles sheds light on the apostle’s theology of preaching in this careful examination of 2 Corinthians 1:1–6:13. Paul’s hallmark themes of Christ crucified and resurrected reflected his own cross-centered vision; informed and shaped his message; and led to the spiritual transformation of his hearers.

24531: Either Gentile or Jew: Paul"s Unfolding Theology of Inclusivity Either Gentile or Jew: Paul’s Unfolding Theology of Inclusivity

By Eung Chun Park / Westminster John Knox Press

$2.99 – Save 90%!!!

In this book, Eung Chun Park reconstructs a focused and coherent narrative of the last two decades of the life of Paul as it revolved around gentile mission. The result is a detailed and thorough analysis of the Pauline letters that shows how Paul’s theology changed over the course of his life as a result of his struggle to defend his gospel against those who advocated a different kind of gospel.The book traces the stories of the two gospels in early Christianity in Paul’s time (i.e., the gospel of the circumcision and the gospel of the uncircumcision) as they unfolded through such landmark events as the Apostolic Council in Jerusalem, the Antioch Incident, the Galatian Incident, the Corinthian Incident, and Paul’s last visit to Jerusalem.

2234X: Paul and the Stoics Paul and the Stoics

By Troels Engberg-Pedersen / Westminster John Knox Press

$4.99 – Save 88% !!!

(PUBWestminster/John Knox)The most in-depth treatment of this topic ever done! Going through Paul’s major epistles, Engberg-Pedersen makes clear how much Paul was indebted to Stoic philosophy both for his theology and his ethics. The bold, original research has all the markings of a landmark publication. 448 pages, softcover.

5101X: The Heavenly Trumpet: John Chrysostom and the Art of Pauline Interpretation The Heavenly Trumpet: John Chrysostom and the Art of Pauline Interpretation

By Margaret M. Mitchell / Westminster John Knox Press

$4.99 – Save 89% !!!

Arguing that all Pauline interpretation depends significantly upon the ways in which readers formulate their own images of the apostle, Margaret M. Mitchell posits that John Chrysostom, the most profilic interpreter of the Pauline epistles in the early church, exemplifies this phenomenon. Mitchell brings together Chrysostom’s copious portraits of Paul – of his body, his soul, and his life circumstances – and for the first time analyzes them as complex rhetorical compositions built open well-known conventions of Greco-Roman rhetoric. Two appendixes offer a fresh translation of Chrysostom’s seven homilies de laudibus sancti Pauli and a catalog of color plates of artistic representation that graphically represent the author/exegete dynamic this study explores.
