PTR Review of Why Johnny Can’t Preach

The Fall 2009 issue of the Princeton Theological Review is online and contains my review of T. David Gordon’s Why Johnny Can’t Preach: the Media Have Shaped the Messengers (P&R, 2009).  Scroll down to pp. 96-98 for the review.  Gordon applies the discipline of media ecology to homiletics by asking two main questions: (1) how has the move from language-based media to image-based and electronic media shaped our sensibilities and (2) how has this change of sensibilities changed today’s preaching?  The book is a must read for every preacher.
