360-Degree Preaching

Michael Quicke

360-Degree Preaching

Michael Quicke

$44.99

Paperback

Much of the malaise of the mainstream Western church results directly from preaching that is far from healthy. A surprising number of new books have been thrown at the problem, advocating fresh styles and techniques or simply restating the case for traditional expository preaching, but preachers are left overwhelmed and confused and their listeners remain just plain bored.

With 360-Degree Preaching, veteran preacher Michael Quicke brings expository preaching to a postmodern world. As someone who preaches every Sunday, he has witnessed the transforming power of preaching first hand for over thirty years. As he teaches students and pastors the art of preaching, his goal is to encourage preachers and those who train to be preachers.

In part 1, Quicke offers some vital principles for biblical preaching. He examines the scriptural roots of preaching and the importance of preaching throughout church history. He analyses the current situation and suggests that the way forward lies in a recommitment to preaching's Trinitarian dynamic, which Quick calls "360-degree preaching." He calls for courageous and thoughtful engagement with culture and examines the effect of a preacher's spirituality upon preaching. He rounds out this first section with implications for preaching in our changing times.

Part 2 focuses on preaching practices and invites preachers to join in the "preaching swim," Quicke's model for the rigorous practical journey all preachers make each time they preach: immersion in Scripture, interpretation for today, sermon design, sermon delivery, and outcome. The book concludes with a sermon evaluation form and a sample sermon produced according to the model Quicke offers.

360-Degree Preaching is a vital tool for preaching students preparing for ministry and pastors looking for fresh insight into communicating to postmodern parishioners.

"Michael Quicke has written a comprehensive and practical guide to developing sermons. Throughout, his clear voice, engaging personality, honest mind, and deep passion for the gospel are present."--Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University"In a novel and fascinating manner, Michael Quicke reflects on the 360-degree view of preaching with passion and realism. Throughout, Quicke teases out the dynamic and mysterious contribution that God makes in regard to the speaker, the hearers, and all those committed to living out the Word. For the budding preacher considering the first plunge or the seasoned preacher seeking to stay fresh, this book is a valuable coaching manual."--Dr. Geoff Pound, principal, Whitley College, Melbourne"Michael Quicke''s love of preaching is both obvious and contagious. His masterful grasp of what''s good and what''s not about today''s pulpit makes for an informative, challenging, and hope-filled read. His invitation to get more deeply involved in ''the preaching swim'' excites us."--David and Karen Mains, codirectors, Mainstay Ministries"Energetic. Vibrant. Dynamic. Authentic. Sane. Spiritual. Overflowing. Michael Quicke has written a wonderful introduction to preaching that is comprehensive without being trite. It provides inspirational instruction for new preachers and will refresh experienced and tired preachers. I have benefited from this book myself and look forward to using it in the classroom."--Derek Tidball, principal, London Bible College"I long for books on preaching that stress the principles of consistency, encounter, and application within a biblical framework while understanding the paradigm shifts of our age. Books that stimulate, risk, and provide workable models stir the preacher''s soul. It''s no surprise that Michael Quicke has produced such a book. I certainly will recommend 360-Degree Preaching to my seminary students and fellow pastors."--Ross Clifford, principal, Morling College, Australia"Preachers today face many challenges, and Michael Quicke is well aware of them. Far from finding reason for despair, he has responded with an inspiring vision of the preaching task. His book contains many practical hints for novices and experienced preachers alike, but its greatest value resides in the theological foundation it lays down. With his picture of the ''preaching swim,'' he sketches a trinitarian perspective on preaching, helping us to see that ''preaching empowered by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit has the potential to impact people unlike any other form of communication.''"--Nigel G. Wright, principal, Spurgeon''s College, London"Keenly attending to, and drawing deft samples from, current professional conversations about the practice of preaching, Michael Quicke shapes for his listeners an energetic sense of the state of the art. Addressing directly the challenges of preaching in postmodern society, he deploys crisply focused strategies for step-by-step entry into the creative discipline of sermon crafting. His method is tendered with gracious hospitality to varieties of theological perspective and personal style. Quicke is both challenging and compassionate as a preaching player-coach."--David J. Schlafer, preaching consultant with Homiletical Formation"Michael Quicke''s passion for the preaching ministry and his wide reflection on its dynamics shine throughout this book. He offers an enthusiastic vision of the theology and practice of preaching, equally well rooted in Scripture and in contemporary cultural realities. This book will be an excellent and practical resource for students and teachers of preaching and a welcome stimulus for experienced preachers who have lost the vision, the fire, or the way."--Stephen Wright, director, College of Preachers, United Kingdom"Michael Quicke offers helpful insights for preachers who want to do more than tread water in the pulpit. His concept of preaching as a 360-degree event is an idea every preacher needs to
