Review:

This helpful paperback from Kregel [Publications] offers practical advice for those looking to expand their preaching repertoire. . . . There are rules for telling good stories. For example, handling introductions is particularly critical, and transitions also are important. An even more crucial skill is the ability to correctly select what to include and what to omit.Telling the Old, Old Story is filled with examples, both good and bad. (Your Church 20040603)

Whether one is still in seminary or just beginning his ministry or has been preaching for twenty years or more, he ought to read this book. (Protestant Reformed Theological Journal 20040603)

New insights for proclaiming the ever-relevant Word of God. (From the Lectionary 20040603)

Larsen, who taught preaching at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School outside Chicago for 30 years, offers an apologetic for the narrative sermon. He points out that since 77 percent of the Old Testament and major chunks of the New Testament are storiesocomplete with plot, tension, and resolutionolearning how to tell a good story is necessary if preachers are to remain true to Scripture. And there are rules for telling good stories. For example, handling introductions is particularly critical, and transitions also are important. An even more crucial skill is the ability to correctly select what to include and what to omit. Telling the Old, Old Story is filled with examples, both good and bad.
