The Liberating PulpitHere is the Conclusion to the review for the book Liberating Pulpit. If you are interested in the whole review, please download the PDF.

I like the book very much in that it suggests ways to enter a text and gain insights that will be helpful to individuals in the pew. The book reminds us that liberation theology is not just about violent overthrow of governments, but it is about experiencing the liberating power of God. In addition, the text provides a foundation for understanding and a method for experiencing the universal aspects of the church because it forces an interaction with the other in the text and in the world. To do these things we must look at all of what we think we know with suspicion. I would suggest that all preachers, whether they consider themselves to be liberation theologians or not, read this work. text to enrich their understanding of preaching.
