Preaching A Disturbing Gospel

Preaching A Disturbing Gospel [PDF]

John Wesley was once asked why so many people came to hear him
preach. His response was, “When you set yourself on fire, people
love to come and see you burn. While the question pushed to
understand why the masses were so intrigued with Wesley’s pulpit,
we might well ask today, what is really happening in our pulpits to
capture the interest and the attention of today’s listener? If we were
to survey local congregations, perhaps we would be surprised to
learn how many people would like to see a little more fire burning in
the pulpit on a Sunday morning! It presses us to ask what preaching
is accomplishing in today’s contemporary world. Is preaching
waking people up or is it painfully lulling them to sleep? Is preaching
inspiring, motivating and reaching people where they are, or has the
relevancy of this time-honored tradition within the Christian Church
lost esteem and effectiveness?

Using these initial questions as a launching pad, the pages that follow
seek to put the reality of the contemporary pulpit in conversation
with a place in history where homiletical fires burned with notable
intensity. Drawing from the richness of The Salvation Army’s story,
we reach back into the Victorian and Edwardian eras (1819-1930) to
encounter the aggressive proclamation of a disturbing gospel.... Is
there still a place for confrontational preaching in the contemporary
pulpit? Does this approach to preaching help to address some of the
very real challenges we are facing in engaging today’s listener?
