A Groundbreaking Resource for Preaching!

If the church wishes to converse effectively with a culture, it must learn the culture's language. Today, shifts in technology mean that language is increasingly one of symbols and metaphors, stories and images---not words. So what does this mean for the sermon, that long- standing, word-based tradition of Christianity? In this ground-breaking resource, bestselling author Leonard Sweet offers an alternative to traditional models of preaching, one that is fitting to a new culture and a new mode of thinking. The first book of its kind to move preaching beyond its pulpit-centric fixation and toward more interactive, participatory modes of communication, Sweet presents both a challenge and a path forward for a church struggling to maintain its relevance in a post-modern, media- saturated culture.

Giving Blood, by bestselling author Leonard Sweet, is a groundbreaking resource for active pastors, ministry students, and public speakers who want to communicative effectively to a post-modern culture. Giving Blood is one of the first books of its kind to move preaching beyond its pulpit-centric fixation toward more interactive, participatory modes of communication.

Leonard I. Sweet is a preacher, scholar, and the author of more than twenty books. He is currently E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism at Drew Theological School in Madison, New Jersey, and a Visiting Distinguished Professor at George Fox University in Portland, Oregon. An ordained pastor in the United Methodist Church, in 2006 and 2007 Len was voted "One of the 50 Most Influential Christians in America" by Church Report Magazine.
