Creatively Preaching the Fourth Gospel
Brand Eaton
The sermons of So that You May Believe: Creatively Preaching the Fourth Gospel employ a variety of homiletic strategies and form, including sermon-in-verse, first-person narrative, parabolic storytelling, and an example of Puritan "plain sermon." The sermons are theologically sound, engaging, and instructive for exploring various sermon constructions and preaching approaches. Teachers of homiletics and biblical interpretation can employ the book as a secondary resource offering examples of unique strategies for interpreting and teaching the gospel.

So that You May Believe seeks to communicate the theological themes of the gospel according to John while broadening the reader's approach to interpreting the gospel. The sermons offer a fresh way of hearing the gospel proclamation and can help to rejuvenate the creativity of those charged with the weekly presentation of the good news of Jesus Christ.
