With its relentless insistence that there is no reality beyond that which we construct, postmodern thought questions the presuppositions of many disciplines, including preaching. Offering a lively description of the postmodern worldview and its implications for Christian faith, this bold book teaches preachers how to rise to the challenge that postmodernism poses. Few if any books on preaching offer such a comprehensive investigation of postmodern thought or yield such a wealth of insights for relevant Christian proclamation. Interestingly, David Lose sees postmodernism not primarily as an obstacle to the church but as an opportunity for it to stand once again on faith alone rather than on attempts to prove the faith. Lose here constructs a homiletic around the Christian practice of "confessing faith, " showing its strength as a dialogue partner with postmodern thought. He also explores the practical implications of a confessional homiletic for preaching and provides concrete methods for preparing sermons that meaningfully bridge biblical texts and contemporary congregations.

Significantly, Lose sees postmodernism not primarily as an obstacle to the church but as an opportunity for it to stand once again on faith alone rather than on attempts to prove the faith. According to Lose, preaching that seeks to be both faithful to the Christian tradition and responsive to our pluralistic, postmodern context is best understood as the public practice of confessing faith in Jesus Christ. He explores the practical implications of a confessional homiletic for preaching and also provides concrete methods for preparing sermons that meaningfully bridge biblical texts and contemporary congregations.
