About-

Preachers are often caught in a double bind--they would like to be more witty and creative, but they aren't sure whether these capacities fit with the serious business of preaching the gospel. Pastor and preaching professor Blayne Banting addresses both the "why" and the "how" of the roles of humour and imagination in preaching. With Wit and Wonder is designed to take the preacher from a solid theological and theoretical grounding in both humour and imagination to how these two God-given gifts might be employed to enhance the preaching ministry of today's communicator.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"With Wit and Wonder is a thoughtful and thorough examination of a commonly utilized but rarely considered aspect of our preaching. Blaine Banting believes that humor is not just something we use to help people pay attention to the more serious aspects of our message, but that it can be capable of carrying the weight of the sermon--and that is no joke!"
--Kenton C. Anderson, President, Northwest Baptist Seminary
