Preaching, a magazine that features insightful interviews with today’s top ministers like Max Lucado and Mark Batterson, and provides sermons, illustrations, and leadership resources for Church Pastors, has named Northern Seminary Professor Dr. Michael Quicke’s latest book, Preaching as Worship as 2011 Preaching Book of the Year. The book was also named as a finalist in the preaching skills category by preachingtoday.com, a ministry of Christianity Today International.
Preaching as Worship has already received some great reviews:
“Michael Quicke’s winsome and insightful exploration of preaching as an integral component and reflection of Trinitarian worship is a welcome contribution to thoughtful literature on both preaching and worship. For too long, one has been viewed as simply a prelude or culmination of the other. Quicke helps us understand how worship and preaching function organically and holistically to honor the persons of the Godhead who also comes to us as one.” — Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary
“This book stretched me and enriched my understanding of preaching and worship.” — Craig Brian Larson, editor, PreachingToday.com
The book challenges those who preach to open their eyes to big-picture worship. Grounded in Trinitarian theology, and focused on the pivotal role of Scripture as it directs those gathered in worship for community formation, Quicke urges his readers to focus their preaching as a worship encounter with God. Preaching as Worship is a clear call for preachers to rethink their responsibilities and the importance of preaching for the sake of their church members and their God.
