Jana Childers-- San Francisco Theological Seminary"Michael Brothers sheds startling new light on the performance aspects of preaching. He not only maps critical concepts and skills but raises important questions about how the preacher's integrity and spirituality are brought to bear in the act of preaching. Preachers and teachers of preachers have been waiting for this book."Richard F. Ward-- Phillips Theological Seminary"In a communication environment characterized by a craving for the immediate and the sensational, Michael Brothers' thoughtful discussion of 'distance' provides welcome relief. Here is an invigorating treatment of an aesthetic principle that has profoundly shaped homiletical practice across generations. You want to learn what makes preaching effective? Study this book."Clay Schmit-- Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, Lenoir-Rhyne University"Michael Brothers has done his homework - and ours as well. Preachers constantly struggle with how to address their listeners and how to proclaim the biblical narratives. . . . This is a welcome book for preachers who find that the competing voices in homiletical method have made it difficult to apply any method with assurance. Distance in Preaching allows us to move through controversy to confidence. Bravo!"Vom Verlag:
In Distance in Preaching, Brothers argues that critical and aesthetic distance as a hermeneutical tool is vital to hearing the gospel today and should be intentionally employed in sermon construction and delivery. Brothers explains this "distance" in the field of homiletics, equips teachers and students of preaching to evaluate the function of distance in sermons, and encourages preachers to practice the use of distance in their preaching. Insights gained from this book will give preachers greater room to speak the gospel so that their listeners get optimal space to hear the preached word.
