Preaching Proverbs: Wisdom for the Pulpit

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, 1. jaan 1996 - 170 pages

Proverbs abound in contemporary culture and in biblical texts. But surprisingly, the use of proverbial wisdom is conspicuously absent in the contemporary pulpit. Alyce McKenzie offers preachers an effective way to reclaim proverbs in preaching, highlights their usefulness in contemporary situations, and demonstrates their ability to confirm (or subvert) the status quo.
