Peculiar Speech Preaching to the Baptized by William H. Willimon

Peculiar Speech Preaching to the Baptized


Peculiar Speech Preaching to the Baptized by William H. Willimon

Willimon writes with passion about the dynamics and implications of preaching to a congregation, to those who, having been called, are either baptized or yet to be baptized. The preacher, says Willimon, needs to address the people in a congregation with peculiar speech, letting the biblical text call them to live a transformed life in keeping with their baptism. Within the book appear three powerful baptismal sermons- The Invitation, Divine divestment, and The New Family.
