360-Degree Preaching: Hearing, Speaking, and Living the Word
With 360-Degree Preaching, veteran preacher Michael Quicke brings expository preaching to a postmodern world. He has witnessed the transforming power of preaching firsthand for more than thirty years and seeks to encourage students and pastors as he teaches them the art of preaching.
Quicke examines the scriptural roots of preaching and its importance throughout church history. He analyzes the current situation and suggests that the way forward lies in a recommitment to preaching's trinitarian dynamic, which Quicke calls 360-degree preaching. The author then focuses on preaching practices and invites preachers to join in the "preaching swim": immersion into Scripture, interpretation, sermon design, sermon delivery, and outcomes.
360-Degree Preaching is a vital resource for preaching students preparing for ministry and pastors looking for fresh insight into communicating to postmodern listeners.
Holistic, Trinitarian Preaching
By Jonathan K. Dodson "JD"
- March 3, 2004
Reading 360 Degree Preaching and discussing its content with Dr Quicke has contributed to both my understanding and experience of the Trinity in sermon preparation. In short, it has propelled me towards preaching as worship.Summary
Quicke defines preaching as, "sharing the in-breaking of God's good news to create a new people in new community." He takes a fourfold approach in describing the nature and purpose of preaching: Prophetic, Transformational, Incarnational, and Diverse. These four elements can be briefly summarized as follows: 1) Prophetic - parallel between prophets and apostles in that they speak God's Word and understand God's Word to be God's deed (Greidanus). 2) Transformational - Jesus' preaching both amazed and antagonized people. Preaching should convict and convert, strengthen and encourage. 3) Incarnational - Jesus incarnational ministry was both to peoples and cultures and his preaching. He is the hinge of history intersecting every culture and... read more
Not just a preaching model, but a lifestyle!

I have been blessed by not only reading this book, but also by having the privilege of being one of Dr. Quicke's students while he was a guest professor at Gordon-
Conwell Theological Seminary. He writes and speaks with great skill, sincerity, and passion. I hope that you will be as enriched by this book as much as I have been!A Brief Overview
360-Degree Preaching provides a refreshing overview of the entire preaching dynamic, integrating spirituality with homiletics. While the book is clearly divided into two parts, its message is continuous the whole way through: preaching cannot be easily defined or explained by a simple doable, human-initiated system. Part one details the realities of preaching and covers a wide span of topics: the biblical and historical basis for preaching, analysis of the contemporary culture, the importance for the preacher to understand him-or herself, and the proposed 360-degree model of preaching. This takes into account of all these factors,... read more
Streams of Water in a Dry Thirsty Land
By Randolph T. Miller
- April 7, 2004
This book on preaching is a welcome addition to the growing body of knowledge in field of homiletics. It is completely accessible, easily read and yet challenging. It is of value for both the novice and the seasoned preachers. Divided into two sections, the first is an integrative review of the homiletical landscape - both historical and current day. The dialogue with the giants of the field are of great value in addressing the changing role of the preacher in the post-Modern age. Quicke examines the power of the scripture and the place of preaching in these changing times. In the second section, Quick introduces a model of preaching as swimming in a river. This concept is initially off-putting, like jumping into cool river or lake. As with immersion, the body soon adapts, so it is with preaching swim paradigm. The mind adapts, the concept becomes more fluid and comfortable, indeed refreshing. His phases of sermon development and delivery provides an important resource... read more
