Overview

To Preach or Not to Preach? questions one of the scared cows in the modern church, namely “the sermon,” and the preeminence it’s given. Norrington’s premise is not built on novelty or questioning just to question. He goes back to the New Testament and shows that there is no evidence for a “a regular weekly” sermon that believers are to lean upon, and the whole “church” experience is to be wrapped around. This book also shows how “the sermon” as it has come to be practiced supplants the one-another ministries of everyday believers, and stifles the expression of Christ in the ekklesia. To Preach was originally published in Britain by Paternoster Press in 1996. It had virtually no circulation in the States. Norrington died in 2007, and his book nearly passed into oblivion. However, several supporters banded together to reoffer this work. And with it, a large additional section was added where Norrington responds to reviews of his book. To Preach is a well-documented study that will challenge traditional ideas, restore hope and function in the body of Christ, and help us understand that "preaching" in the NT was primarily a vital evangelistic activity directed toward unbelievers.
