The crisis of preaching is that we face an audience accustomed to new forms of communication. The way people listen is shaped mostly by today's most dominant medium -- television. And yet we preach about the same as preachers did before the arrival of television. It isn't working very well. (from the foreword)

The gospel has always been conveyed primarily by speaking it to people. The problem is that in today's world of television people listen and hear differently than they listened and heard in the past.

"When preachers understand the dynamics of this new world, then the gospel can ring with new vigor and life in our preaching," writes the author.

Preaching To A TV Generation explores the changes brought to our society by television. It suggests what preachers can do in the face of these changes -- in terms of language, structure, creativity and delivery.
