Facing Snarls and Scowls: Preaching through Hostility, Apathy and Adversity
4 in stock
Pastor, the hard work of church revitalization is a unique experience and battle ground. It can feel like you’re all alone. But the trials you face are not new. Faithful preachers throughout scriptures and church history have encountered hostility, apathy, and adversity, and continue to do so today. Brian Croft and James Carroll here share their personal stories and seek to encourage you to faithfully persevere in this Spirit–empowered, God–honoring, Christ–exalting work.
It seems I have read enough books on preaching to populate a small book store, but never one like this. Both authors have served as faithful preachers in a revitalizing context for many years and have long practiced the things they write about here. Read it and be reminded (and instructed) that the power of God for transformation—for the church—lies in what the apostle Paul calls “the foolishness of preaching.”
