In The Trouble with Truth Through Personality (Wipf & Stock), my colleague Chuck Fuller demonstrates the problem with the famous definition of preaching by Phillips Brooks. Many of us have used that definition of preaching (as “truth through personality”) with little consideration of what Brooks may have meant. Fuller will make many of us rethink that position.
Charles W. Fuller takes to task the famous Phillips Brooks’ definition of preaching as “truth through personality.” In his book The Trouble with Truth Through Personality (Wipf & Stock), Fuller explores the theological implications of such a definition and encourages appropriate boundaries between the preacher and the message. This is a book any student of preaching will find interesting and helpful.
