    Dying to Preach

    Embracing the Cross in the Pulpit


    Drawing inspiration from the seminal preacher, the apostle Paul, Steven W. Smith takes a fresh look not just at the how of preaching, but at the whys. In 2 Corinthians 4:12, Paul describes the philosophy of his ministry as “death in us, but life in you.” Building on this scriptural framework, Steve Smith
    illustrates the theology of preaching through the metaphor of vicarious suffering, dying so that others might live. As he elaborates the intersection
    of the cross and the pulpit, Smith shows why the preacher must die to self, die for others, and die in Christ so that congregations may live.
