Thou shalt not snooze: How to wake up your ministry - and your life
Is your preaching passionate? Is your ministry strong and exciting? Are your words - and your life - charged with challenge, hope, and vigour?
For every pastor who struggles with these questions, Edward K. Rowell offers an empathetic, insightful look into the heart and soul of ministering. In PREACHING WITH SPIRITUAL PASSION, he shows you how to
- understand the sacred and even selfish motives that may propel your spiritual passion
- cope with the fatigue that sneaks up even when you enjoy your ministry
- delight in regular times of laughter, solitude, worship, and recreation.
Whether you're fresh from seminary or a well-seasoned pastor, this book helps you grasp all that happens in and through you as a preacher.
For many pastors, the regular challenge of sermon preparation and delivery is a painful process. Sundays are just so... weekly. And no pastor wants to be accused of less-than-heartfelt preaching. But according to Ed Rowell, preaching is also one of the primary arenas where God steps in to break, melt, and remold a pastor's soul. Preaching with Spiritual Passion offers God's messengers important insights into the deep transformations that can overtake them when they preach passionately. It shows pastors how their preaching can affect them, how their spiritual life is the foundation for their sermons, and how, ultimately, the sermon converts the preacher.
A spiritual guide for God's messengers who long to understand the deep things that happen in and through them as preachers.
Edward K. Rowell is director of Presbyterian Action in Bellevue, Washington. A former editor at Leadership journal and Preaching Today, Rowell has written six books, including a novel, Emma's Journal.
