Schlafer's book is an adventure in homiletical spirituality and imagination. It leads us through reflection and practical exercises to deepen our self-awareness as preachers. These exercises allow us to discern whether we are poets, storytellers, or essayists; discover our preaching "parents" and mentors, and develop a preaching style that avoids rigidity and self-preoccupation. Developed in workshops and conferences around the country, Your Way with God's Word can also be used in diverse settings and groups, including homiletical workshops, sermon reflection groups in the parish, and preaching colleagues groups. The introduction to the book gives numerous practical suggestions for its use. As a personal preaching resource, this book is also a powerful aid to prayer and spirituality.

Industry Reviews

David Schlafer will already be a familiar name to readers. . . . For the uninitiated who have not yet had the pleasure of listening to him, he is an Episcopal priest with a passion for preaching and the gift of being able to explore its theological dimensions with pastoral sensitivity and intellectual subtlety. . . . "This is a book to plunder then and to ponder. . .; In some important respects the book is as much about good liturgy and the cultivation of the imagination as about pertinent preaching. It should be kept close to the desk rather than on the book shelves and consulted when (but preferably before) our wells run dry. Recommended.--Rod Garner "The College Of Preachers: The Journal "
