But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’ (Romans 10:14-15)
This is a book for preachers. From the earliest days of the Christian journey, proclaiming the story has been a crucial practice. The forms and styles of that proclamation have changed dramatically over the centuries but the overall purpose has been the same: to bring the human life into contact with a life-changing and life-altering story. I presume you picked up this little book because you feel the invitation to join that long and incredibly diverse parade of individuals who have taken up the call to proclaim.
