Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. -- Proverbs 4:25-26 Preaching is difficult enough under the best of circumstances. But what are we to do when it seems that all of us--hearers and preachers alike--are constantly distracted? Veteran preacher and homiletics professor J. Ellsworth Kalas offers wise insights for effective preaching in an age of distraction. He examines how people have been distracted in every era and explores how God can meet people precisely at the point of their distraction. Regardless of whatever new technologies come our way, this call to pastoral attentiveness, creativity and excellence provides avenues for connecting with congregations with a countercultural clarity of focus. Rediscover how the proclamation of the Word still speaks profoundly to distracted hearers. Invite your congregation to a renewed attention to the things of God.
"Dr. Kalas's lucid insights into the distracted culture we live in, the variety of congregations and congregants pastors serve, and the challenges we face in combining pastoral and administrative duties with preaching weekly are true to life. Some books can make me feel overwhelmed by the pastoral task. But reading Preaching in an Age of Distraction provided a lens to review my work and my people, and left me refreshed and renewed, wanting to pursue this high and holy calling without distraction." --David Renwick, senior pastor, The National Presbyterian Church, Washington, D.C.
