Abstract:

What if preachers were as contagiously joyful in their preaching as Louis Armstrong was in his playing and singing? As rich in their sermonic renderings as Sarah Vaughn was in her musical vocals? As honest about heartache as Billie Holiday was every time she sang about the blues? As alluringly clear as the angelic voice of Ella Fitzgerald? As tenaciously uninhibited in the action of creating as Duke Ellington? Kirk Byron Jones explains how to dramatically improve one's preaching through understanding and applying key elements of the musical art form known as jazz. These elements include innovation; rhythm; call and response; honesty about heartache; and delight. Drawing on a deep love of jazz and enlivening his discussion with insights drawn from the tradition of African American preaching, Jones introduces the reader to rich and rewarding possibilities for constructing and delivering the sermon.
