The Preacher as Liturgical Artist
Endorsements & Reviews-
--Robert Smith Jr., Samford University
"In an age taken up with technique, this study dwells on character. In an era given over to image, Johnson explores the spoken word. There's nothing wrong with preaching that a clear sense of identity, a clear understanding of role, a thorough theological grasp of Christianity as practical wisdom and thrilling news, and an artist's playfulness and imagination cannot put right. In this impressive and encouraging work, Johnson gives us hope in preaching, but more significantly, hope in the gospel."
--Sam Wells, St. Martin-in-the-Fields
"Johnson, who is a fine preacher, has written a fine book for the rest of us. The Preacher as Liturgical Artist is an astute, theologically informed look at the challenges and the opportunities of preaching in a postmodern context. Trygve shows how preaching is an art that is dependent upon the miraculous, gracious speaking of God. This book can help us preachers recover our theological nerve--and also the great joy of preaching."
--Will Willimon, Duke Divinity School
"Trygve Johnson is the campus minister whose college you hope your kid will choose. He is the wordsmith who will inspire the preacher, whom he doesn't make jealous. And with this book he shows he is a theologian with whom the church and the academy must reckon."
--Jason Byassee, Duke Divinity School
