Concordia Pulpit ResourcesAs each person’s signature is unique, so each preacher, says David Schlafer, has a distinctive preaching voice. This book is about that voice, but voice understood in a broad sense. Voice means more than tone, rate, style, and manner of presentation. It includes one’s ‘preaching parents’ (models), special gifts, the context, and the voices to which the preacher has listened. The sermon, according to Schlafer, is a ‘sacred conversation’ in which the preacher orchestrates all the voices that he hears in the Scriptures and the culture. This book intends to guide the reader, through reflection and practical exercises (done either alone or in a group), to a deeper self-awareness of that distinctive preaching voice.
