The third work by Gerhard Forde published in the Lutheran Quarterly Books series, The Preached God speaks directly to preachers, calling them to deliver the truths of forgiveness, life, and salvation through both word and sacrament to all who listen.Closely tying preaching to theology and vice versa, Forde argues that preaching itself is a sacrament and is, moreover, "God's election of the ungodly." These chapters provide a window into the way that Forde taught others to do the kind of preaching in which God himself is brought to hearers by word and sacrament. It also provides, through a selection of Forde's own sermons, a model for pastors today and an inspiring look into the mind and word of one of the twentieth century's great theologians.If theology is for proclamation, as Forde claimed, this theological treatment of preaching will challenge and inspire preachers to proclaim in faith and with conviction.CONTENTSCitations for Previously Published EssaysAbbreviations for Frequently Used ReferencesAcknowledgmentsIntroduction: Taking the Risk to ProclaimGOD PREACHED AND NOT PREACHEDWhatever Happened to God?
