Preaching that Shows: Revealing relevance by Margaret Cooling (SCM Press, £25 (£20); 978-0-334-06184-7).
“Offering a ground-breaking approach as a counter to well-worn preaching strategies, this book explores the ‘revelatory plot’, focused more on the gradual revelation of relevant truths within the biblical text through character and embodied insight, and through imaginative and sensory detail rather than through answering the questions ‘how and why’. It will prove an invaluable resource for students, homileticians and preachers alike.”
