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 isn’t just the dissemination of information; it is a conduit of Spirit-empowered formation. Such formative preaching doesn’t convince the intellect; it captures the imagination. A controlling image has the power to do just this—to 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. I’ll be pointing preachers to it from now on.”  --James K.A. Smith, author of Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation

“Preaching in Pictures opened eyes of my imagination.  I can’t wait to write my next sermon.” --Heidi DeJonge Pastor, Westside Fellowship Christian Reformed Church, Kingston, Ontario

“Peter Jonker offers preachers practical ways to connect the gospel in the hearts of listeners, with a wealth of helpful examples.  This is a fresh and welcome perspective, just the book for preachers whose sermons have reached their shelf life and are in need of new energy.” --John Michael Rottman, Professor of Preaching Calvin Theological Seminary

“Sane, balanced, assured--but also strikingly insightful--Peter Jonker's writing is a sheer gift to anyone interested in eventful preaching.  Every page is worth pondering. Jonker writes with great verve and authority.”  --Cornelius Plantinga, Jr., Author of Reading for Preaching: The Preacher in Conversation with Storytellers, Biographers, Poets, and Journalists

Book Description Abingdon Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 160 pages. How often do poets, advertisers, and movie makers influence Sunday sermons Perhaps these image experts have much to offer pastors. Author Peter Jonker looks to these professionals as he examines the importance of having a controlling, vivid, dominant image that repeats throughout sermons. In Preaching in Pictures, Jonker details how a controlling image helps to unify the sermon and to communicate the sermons central thought. The best sermons center around a compelling image that embodies either the trouble present in the Biblical text, or the trouble destroying grace of God that the text proclaims. Jonker offers exercises designed to help pastors find strong, controlling images for their sermons. Preaching in Pictures is the third book in the Artistry of Preaching Series. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781426781926
