Preaching as Prophetic Calling is the twelfth in a series of books devoted to presenting examples of preaching excellence from parishes throughout the Episcopal Church. This volume addresses the difficult and essential area of preaching a prophetic word. What does a prophetic sermon look like without being shrill, and without being filled with "e;musts,"e; "e;oughts,"e; and "e;shoulds"e;? This collection of sermons includes examples of prophetic preaching that are visionary and that speak in ways that offer radical comfort as well as radical challenge. Roger Alling is president of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation and director of the Foundation's Preaching Excellence Program. Co-editor of the Sermons that Work series, he lives in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. David J. Schlafer is a former philosophy professor and seminary sub-dean who teaches homiletics at a number of seminaries in a variety of denominations. Co-editor of the Sermons that Work series, he lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
