Preaching and the Personal.

Preaching and the Personal. Edited by J. Dwayne Howell. Cambridge: Lutterworth, 2014. ISBN: 978-1-6109-78262, xii and 158 pages. Paper. $20.00.

This collection offers a valuable resource for those wondering how to faithfully manage the personal dimension of preaching God's word. The text includes papers originally given at the annual gathering of the Society for Biblical Literature. Each author explores a different perspective of personal engagement, including aspects of performance, testimony, memory, gender, and culture. Some look at the appearance of personal dynamics in biblical texts, particularly John's gospel and Leviticus. While readers will likely find some chapters more relevant to their particular context, the offerings of each author deserve consideration for how we, as personal beings, engage in the practice of preaching.
