Much of today's preaching is fixated on "how-tos" -- how to make preaching more relevant, more interesting, more fun. Michael Pasquarello suggests that this fixation may stem from a preaching imagination more beholden to technical, scientific reason than theological wisdom. In place of reasonable new techniques or strategies for effective speaking, Pasquarello offers something more salutary -- exemplars of preaching from the Christian tradition. From Augustine to Calvin, these preachers conceived of Christian speech as a theological practice learned through prayerful attention to the Bible and aimed at communion with God.^"Sacred Rhetoric" is an invitation to join an extended conversation with the past in order to become faithful preachers of the gospel in a post-Christian society. Preachers, seminarians, and students of Christian history will find much to learn from Pasquarello's fresh perspective and passion for the past.

Modern approaches to preaching today are largely fixated on "how-to's" -- how to make preaching more relevant, more interesting, more entertaining. Michael Pasquarello suggests that this fixation may stem from a preaching imagination more beholden to technical, scientific reason than theological wisdom. Rather than devising new techniques or strategies for effective speaking, Pasquarello offers something more salutary -- portraits of ten exemplary preachers from the Christian tradition. Included in Pasquarello's gallery are Augustine of Hippo, Gregory the Great, Benedict, Bernard of Clairvaux, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, Erasmus, Hugh Latimer, Martin Luther, and John Calvin. These excellent preachers conceived of Christian speech as a unique theological practice learned through prayerful attention to the Bible and aimed at communion with God. "Sacred Rhetoric" invites readers to join an extended conversation with the past in order to become faithful preachers of the gospel in a post-Christian society. Preachers, seminarians, and students of Christian history will find much to learn from Pasquarello's fresh perspective and passion for the past.

A single ideal has increasingly held captive the preaching imagination in late modernity -- that of technical, scientific reason rather than theological wisdom. In place of reasonable new techniques or strategies for effective speaking, Michael Pasquarello offers some-thing more salutary: exemplars of preaching from the Christian tradition. From Augustine to Calvin, these preachers conceived of Christian speech as a theological practice learned through prayerful, studied attention to the Bible.^"Sacred Rhetoric" is an invitation to join an extended conversation with the past so as to become more faithful speakers of the Gospel in the post-Christian society of today.
