The preachers words are meant to connect, to resonate with and influence hearers. Too often, sermons fall short. Preaching in Pictures: Using Images for Sermons that Connect shows how to choose, use, and illustrate a controlling image in every sermon. Readers learn how one effective image can cause the proclaimed word to sink in and transform the listener. Peter Jonker helps readers to build skill and confidence, with practical instruction, examples, and straightforward teaching.
Good preaching isnt just the dissemination of information; it is a conduit of Spirit-empowered formation. Such formative preaching doesnt convince the intellect; it captures the imagination. A controlling image has the power to do just thisto capture the imagination. Peter Jonker invites preachers to understand and to effectively use controlling images for formation of the hearer. This great book is erudite and accessible, theoretically grounded and yet intensely practical, complete with exercises. Ill be pointing preachers to it from now on. --James K.A. Smith, author of Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation
