I feel like this was a book right up my alley As soon as I heard about it I ordered it and began reading it I even set aside the four other books I was reading in order to focus on this one alone Ultimately it did not disappointJohn W Wright wants to move preachers from expositional preaching to narrative preaching He s basically arguing that expositional preaching teaches us to assent to certain truths truth claims or even claims on behavior Whereas narrative preaching is calling us into the story the Biblical story in a way that will form us to live breathe act love and think as a peculiar people living in a hostile worldIn the first two sections of the book Wright explains how the divide between hermeneutics interpretation and homiletics preaching has created a disconnect for preachers He goes on to show how throughout American history American preachers have created a narrative competing with the Biblical narrative according to which we now view the world The style of preaching they were committed to and we know preach and hear only affirms that competing narrative the American narrative These sections of the book are really really good His look at Puritan preaching in American history is really incredibleIn the next two sections of the book Wright presents a form and examples of what sermons can look like as narrative preaching He explains how pastors can expose the frailty and unbiblical nature of the American narrative then move toward replacing it with the Biblical narrative I like these sections except for his explanation of the actual move into the Biblical narrative what he called Moving into God s Story It felt a little flat there and I m not sure it was clear exactly how to do that for preachers I really wish at this point that he would have brought in the uadriga or some information on typological preaching He hinted at the necessity of typology earlier but didn t really go into how to use it here I think that would have really sealed the deal for his argumentIn the final section his conclusion he gives a brief description of Augustine s understanding of the use of rhetoric Rhetoric is a good thing and pastors need to be willing to take the time to study it In all I think Wright s book is a needed corrective and I m glad I ve read it as it got me thinking about the nature of preaching and stories
