Experienced contributors from a wide range of backgrounds - catholic, evangelical and liberal - weave together theology, anecdote and reflection on practice as they share their passion for preaching. Each one is noted for their attentiveness to the poetry of the spoken word in preaching, and the practical challenges and pitfalls of this central activity of public worship. Chapters include:  The Joy and Terror of Preaching  The Power of Language  Localizing the Gospel  Attentiveness to the Word  The Sermon as Sacrament  Genres of Preaching Contributors include Rachel Mann, Paula Gooder, Donna Lazenby, Sr Judith SLG, Edmund Newey, Anderson Jeremiah and Joel Love.
