Preaching is dramatic. Through it, we hear the voice of the living God as he speaks to us both through the reading and the preaching of the word of God. But where do the hearers of sermons fit into the drama? This book suggests ways in which the drama metaphor may help to address age old questions about the centrality of the gospel and the place of the hearer in preaching. As God in Christ is the central character in the biblical drama of redemption, he also calls hearers to understand their role in creatively, yet faithfully living according to the biblical script. Thus, no sermon is complete until God's redemptive work is powerfully proclaimed, and his people are instructed in how they too are participating in the Missio Dei. In this work, Hebrews 11 is employed as a means of showing how God not only reveals his redemptive work to his people, but also through them. As postmodernism sets the stage of contemporary preaching, The Drama of Preaching interacts with some of the particular challenges preachers face in engaging postmodern listeners, that they might not only be hearers, but doers of the preached word.

The study of liturgy has received criticism from scholars and practitioners alike: the academic discipline of liturgiology has been compared to the hobby of stamp collection, and proponents for liturgical renewal argue that worship must be made more accessible and relevant. Bryan Spinks has been an important moderating voice in this discussion, reminding both academic and ecclesial communities that Christ is made known in the liturgical riches of the past as well as in contemporary forms of the present. Inspired by Spinks' work, this volume brings together biblical, historical, and theological scholars to discuss the theme of continuity and change in worship. Its historical range begins with the early church, extends through the Reformation, and concludes with a discussion of issues facing contemporary liturgical reform. In recognition of the fact that Professor Spinks' work has been widely influential in both Europe and the United States, the editors have solicited liturgical perspectives from scholars with international reputations on sides of the Atlantic.

To some Western evangelicals, the practices of Eastern Orthodoxy seem mysterious and perhaps even unbiblical. Then again, from an Orthodox perspective, evangelicals lack the spiritual roots provided by centuries-old church traditions. Are the differences between these two branches of Christianity so sharp that to shake hands is to compromise the gospel itself? Or is there room for agreement? Are Eastern Orthodoxy and evangelicalism at all compatible? Yes, no, maybe—this book allows five leading authorities to present their different views, have them critiqued by their fellow authors, and respond to the critiques. Writing from an Orthodox perspective with a strong appreciation for evangelicalism, Bradley Nassif makes a case for compatibility. Michael Horton and Vladimir Berzonsky take the opposite stance from their respective evangelical and Orthodox backgrounds. And George Hancock-Stefan (evangelical) and Edward Rommen (Orthodox) each offer a qualified “perhaps.” The interactive Counterpoints forum is ideal for comparing and contrasting the different positions to understand the strengths and weaknesses of these two important branches of Christianity and to form a personal conclusion regarding their compatibility. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

English summary: Martin Luther's intention when writing this essay was to offer assistance in praying to a barber. In this volume Luther's text is edited and commented on by Ulrich Kopf and Peter Zimmerlink. It provides an insight into the reformer's spirituality and enables the reader to see Martin Luther and his theology. German description: Martin Luthers Schrift Wie man beten soll ermoglicht einen Blick in die personliche Spiritualitat des Reformators wie nur wenige andere seiner Bucher. Die Schrift zeigt am Beispiel des Gebets, wie Luther seine Frommigkeit ganz konkret gelebt hat. Daneben zeichnet sie sich durch Einfachheit und Anschaulichkeit aus. Luther verfasste das Buchlein fur einen Handwerker: seinen Barbier Meister Peter. In der Vorbereitung auf das Reformationsjubilaum 2017 hat die Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland eine Lutherdekade ausgerufen. Die Neuherausgabe von Martin Luthers Schrift Wie man beten soll von 1535 durch Ulrich Kopf und Peter Zimmerling mochte in diesem Zusammenhang einen Beitrag dazu leisten, Glauben und Denken des Reformators, die auch vielen evangelischen Christen fremd geworden sind, einer breiten Offentlichkeit nahe zu bringen. Auf wenigen Seiten hat Luther einen Lehrgang des Betens entwickelt. Der Reformator will einem Laien, der offensichtlich Schwierigkeiten mit dem Gebet hat, eine Gebetshilfe geben und ihn dadurch zum Beten ermutigen. Luther geht davon aus, dass der Glaube der geistlichen Ubung bedarf, wenn er nicht verkummern soll. Insofern stellt die Schrift eine Korrektur gegenuber neueren protestantischen Uberzeugungen dar, dass die Rechtfertigungslehre allein aus Gnaden und die Notwendigkeit geistlicher Ubungen einander widersprechen. Dabei halt Luther fest: Gebet im Rahmen evangelischer Spiritualitat ereignet sich in einem Spielraum der Freiheit. Das Beten vorformulierter Texte dient dem geubten Beter als Feuerzeug, um in dessen Herzen ein Feuer anzuzunden und ihn zum freien Gebet zu befahigen. Die praktisch-theologisch ausgerichtete Einleitung von Zimmerling sowie das Vorwort von Kopf erleichtern den Zugang zu Martin Luthers Schrift.
