Peculiar Speech: Preaching to the Baptized

Category: Tag:


Willimon writes with passion about the dynamics and implications of preaching to a congregation, to those who, having been called, are either baptized or yet to be baptized. The preacher, says Willimon, needs to address the people in a congregation with “peculiar speech,” letting the biblical text call them to live a transformed life in keeping with their baptism. Within the book appear three powerful baptismal sermons- “The Invitation,” “Divine divestment,” and “The New Family.”
