About the Author

Andre Resner is Professor of Homiletics and Church Worship, and Director of the Chapel at Hood Theological Seminary. He is the author of Preacher and Cross: Person and Message in Theology and Rhetoric, and editor and contributor to Just Preaching: Prophetic Voices for Economic Justice, and, with Mike Graves, What's Right With Preaching Today?

Reviews

With an unabashed and prophetic honesty about suffering, lament, justice, and hope, Andre Resner calls the church to a faithful resistance--in both verbal and embodied protest--empowered by the theology of the apocalyptic reality of the gospel.
--Frank A. Thomas, Nettie Sweenie and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Homiletics, Director of the Academy of Preaching and Celebration, Christian Theological Seminary

In a world where televangelists and even some mainline preachers often resemble shady used car salesmen, Resner tells us the truth--all is not well in this world--even as he reminds us to hope in God who is working all things out. Rather than spouting pious platitudes or citing complex formulas and creeds, Resner gives us what the Bible itself offers: stories and testimony. If you can't buy a used car from him, buy this book. It tells the truth.
--Mike Graves, Wm. K. McElvaney Professor of Preaching and Worship, Saint Paul School of Theology

This book is an honest reflection on the Christian life for those who know tear-stained hope as their food day and night. Andre Resner tells the truth and nothing but the truth about the gospel and God. It is a literary testimony to the persistence of a loving and just God amid times of sorrow and joy. There's no fluff here, just the raw faith of living in the presence of a crucified God.
--Luke A. Powery, Dean of the Chapel, Associate Professor of Homiletics, Duke University

I highly recommend this book for homileticians and preachers alike. Readers will benefit
from Resner's embodiment of two modes of prophetic discourse. Moreover, they will gain a new
insight by seeing how the author engages the text in each chapter from the perspective of the
apocalyptic gospel and re-illuminates them with his fresh readings and interpretations.
-- Duse Lee, Boston University School of Theology, as reviewed in Homiletic.
