The Steps from Text to Narrative Sermon
Presenting biblically centered sermons in a new,
creative genre
Pastors and teachers are always on the lookout for new
ways to expand the effectiveness of their preaching.
Sermons delivered in the first-person point of view can
weave the power of story and drama into the biblical
teaching, making familiar—and not-so-familiar—
characters and situations come to life. This book helps
students and pastors understand how first-person
sermons can be preached with biblical integrity. It
extends Haddon Robinson’s “big idea” philosophy of
preaching to this new genre.
J. Kent Edwards takes a practical approach as he walks
readers through the steps needed for creating sermons
that are faithful to the text and engaging to the listener.
Examples and worksheets enable readers to apply this
unique approach to one of their own sermons. The book
includes a CD-ROM with a video sample of first-person
narrative preaching.
