This needed book seeks to reclaim the apostle Paul for today's church. Convinced that many pastors do not preach from Paul because he is too difficult, argumentative, or controversial, Nancy Lammers Gross proposes a new way to preach from Paul that is both relevant and biblically grounded. According to Gross, pastors have erred by merely saying what Paul said. Her answer is simple: Do what Paul did; don't just say what Paul said. Paul's writing functioned in his ministry to form persons for a life of participation in Christ. Modern preaching too, Gross says, needs to do what Paul was doing bringing thenew reality of Christ's lordship into engagement with the context in which his hearers lived. Proposing paradigm shifts that will fundamentally change the way preachers approach the Pauline texts, this volume will be highly valued by anyone involved in the work of Christian proclamation.
