Creative Preaching on the Sacraments is a practical guide to lifting up the connection between Scripture and the Christian life in sermons that explore the meanings of the sacraments as the church’s experience of Christ’s saving activity in baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Mystagogy, the genre of creative preaching described in this book, leads listeners into the mysteries of the Christian faith and declares that these great truths of God in Jesus Christ are made visible and tangible to us in the sacraments.
