Just as aspiring composers learn by studying Haydn symphonies and Bartok string quartets, so students of preaching benefit greatly from studying remarkable sermons by such gifted preachers as Frederick Buechner, the Buttricks, and Barbara Brown Taylor. To make model sermons more accessible, Thomas G. Long and Cornelius Plantinga Jr. have compiled this anthology of mostly contemporary sermons that display excellence in form, aim, style, and content.
Developed and delivered by renowned ministers, theologians, and professors with a wide range of backgrounds and denominational affiliations, the thirty-six entries in this volume include sermons that make artful use of their sources, that pursue classic aims, that exhibit particular homiletic forms and dynamics, and that are suited to special occasions.
An excellent companion text for homiletics courses, A Chorus of Witnesses will also appeal to established preachers seeking to enrich their familiarity with sermon styles and to Christian readers who wish to learn more about their faith and their Lord.
Thomas G. Long is the Gandy Professor of Preaching at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. His books include The Witness of Preaching, Testimony: Talking Ourselves into Being Christian, and Beyond the Worship Wars: Building Vital and Faithful Worship.
Cornelius Plantinga Jr. is president of Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan. His books include Not the Way It’s Supposed to Be: A Breviary of Sin and Engaging God’s World: A Christian View of Faith, Learning, and Living (both Eerdmans).
