Studies show a strong relationship between church growth and preaching. In growing churches, people find preaching and worship to be interesting, meaningful, alive, and even life-giving. Nourished in the gospel, they are strengthened for life and witness. "Preaching for Growth" discusses important characteristics that can make this kind of difference in human lives. "Preaching for Growth" does not propose a special kind of "evangelistic preaching," but asserts that solid, weekly parish preaching will contribute in a faithful way to the growth of the church. It nurtures the congregation in the gracious love of God. In that love, people can respond in joyful faith, in praise and thanksgiving to God, and in lives of love and justice. The book identifies and explains twenty characteristics of sound preaching, controlled by a lively, responsible theology, delivered with conviction, good sense, pastoral care, and sensitivity to life. Ronald J. Allen is Assistant Professor of Preaching and New Testament at Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis.
