Overview

At some point in their careers, warns Joseph R. Jeter, Jr., all pastors will face a similar situation. Crises, whether in the life of the congregation, the community, or the nation, arise. When they do, the people invariably ask, "Is there any word from the Lord?" The preacher's job is to find that word and preach it as best as he or she can.

But if they are going to do so, they need to be prepared.

In short, anecdotal chapters, Joseph R. Jeter, Jr. explains how to diagnose a crisis (public, congregational, and personal) and offers homiletical strategies for creating sermons when speaking during a crisis. In addition, crisis situations are explored in terms of pastoral care and counseling that is required during seasons of dislocation and alarm (for example, when a factory closes and causes 50 percent unemployment in a congregation).
