Table of Contents

The Sermon as Symphony is a call to consider the way that biblical texts present themselves. Graves proposes that the literary forms of the texts provide clues on how to preach them, resulting in an approach that he calls “form-sensitive.” The Sermon as Symphony examines ten of the most significant and practical literary forms in the New Testament. Also included are sample sermons by some of today’s best-known preachers.


Editorial Reviews:

"Probably the two most significant new books in homiletics that were released in 1997 were Mike Graves, The Sermon as Symphony: Preaching the Literary Forms of the New Testament and the late Lucy Rose's Sharing the Word: Preaching in the Round-Table Church. Graves gives helpful insight into the literary form of the Scripture, enabling more authentic Biblical proclamation." —Preaching.com, "Adding to the Preacher's Bookshelf: The Year's Best Books on Preaching," June 2009
