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.
