Prophetic preaching in the American pulpit has suffered a decline in the last 20 - 25 years. Several things are to blame: an overzealous preoccupation with praise and worship; a false and narrow view of patriotism; and a focus on prosperity and personal enrichment themes. Where Have All the Prophets Gone? is a call for preachers to learn the importance of keeping their eyes on the vision of Jesus and the biblical prophets when preaching--that of doing justice, caring for others, and being equitable. The book makes a biblical argument for the importance and the content of prophetic preaching, and argues that the issues is not preaching from a text taken from the prophetic corpus but preaching on the themes that echoed over and over from the biblical prophets themselves.
