God Is in the House
A Fresh Model for Shaping a Sermon

Good preaching is not simply a matter of communicating the gospel message. Rather, it is an invitation to encounter the living God who dwells within that message.

Distilling forty years of preaching experience into a single book, God Is in the House is a highly practical tool for all those seeking to strengthen their preaching ministry. It draws on Scripture’s many images of God as architect and builder to guide its readers through the process of shaping effective sermons. Both manifesto and manual, it addresses the overall role and significance of preaching, while also exploring the specific elements a sermon should contain. Full-length examples are included for illustration, and each chapter has practical exercises to aid the reader in integrating new tools into their homiletic practice.

This book offers a fresh and imaginative model for thinking about the process of designing and delivering sermons. It is an excellent resource for both experienced and developing preachers.
