The Living Pulpit: Sermons that Illustrate Preaching in the Stone-Campbell Movement 1968-20

18 Paperback – April 10, 2018

Fifty years of preaching excellence in one volume.

The Living Pulpit collects sermons from representative preachers in the Stone-Campbell Movement–pastors affiliated with the Churches of Christ, the Christian Churches/Churches of Christ, and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)–over the past 50 years. The fourth volume in a series that began in 1868, this collection of sermons from 40 ministers, reviewed by a diverse team of scholars, captures the theological themes and changing approaches to preaching across the Movement’s three streams. Emerging from an era of mutual suspicion, the three streams have developed a better understanding, shared mutuality and respect for each stream’s unique qualities, and cooperated in many venues, qualities reflected in this collection. The Living Pulpit2018 helps preachers and scholars recognize where preaching has been–and why it has been there–in each stream, and where preaching appears to be going in a new mission field for Christianity and the Unity Movement.  See it on Amazon here.

Effective Practice

Charles A. Siburt was an extraordinary Christian man. Minister, scholar, mentor, innovative leader, and peacemaker are only a few of the descriptors of my friend. We saw him live among us, and we saw the spirit of Jesus in every dimension of his life. –Royce Money, chancellor, Abilene Christian University.

Appreciating the strengths and limitations of [DMin] programs, Sensing offers a guide and sourcebook for students in designing and writing their project theses. Equally important is his approach to the degree and project in which the student is a practical theologian engaging theology as a communal, formative, critical, and public activity. The church desperately needs quality doctoral work producing rigorous research that contributes to the practice of ministry. Those who share this goal have a valuable new resource. –Lovett H. Weems, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Church Leadership, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC
