Preaching in the visual age

From the beginning, preaching the gospel has been the very heart of the Christian church’s approach to renewal and engagement, but communication is rapidly changing. Many Christians and preachers wonder what place preaching has in our image-based world and how to bring the Word to people inundated by images. What does Jesus, “the Word made visual,” have to say to us about our concerns? Mark Labberton and David Taylor tried to answer the question in a workshop held during the 2013 Worship Symposium, hosted by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an organization that promotes the study and renewal of Christian worship. The Symposium is held each January and addresses issues facing faith communities.
