Making Gospel Sense is theologian James Wm. McClendon, Jr.'s riveting story of his experiences as an interim pastor in a floundering congregation. Through twenty-six prophetic sermons, each introduced by interpretive commentary, McClendon describes his call to the church, the struggle between disparate personalities, the difficulties and rewards of moving from classroom to sanctuary, and the evolution of his congregation from seemingly hopeless decline to spirited recovery. Here is a microcosm of today's church - a tale of anxiety, dissension, self-discovery, and renewal.

Essential reading for pastors, seminarians, and all those who care about the church, 'Making Gospel Sense' is at once a challenging and inspiring pilgrimage to the true meaning of ministry.
James Wm. McClendon, Jr. was Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California, until his death on October 30, 2000. Previous teaching positions included the Golden Gate Baptist Seminary in Berkeley, California, and the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, also in Berkeley. He is author of a three volume systematic theology, titled 'Ethics', 'Doctrine', and 'Witness' (published by Abingdon Press).
"This is a wise book, a wonderful book - and I mean that quite literally - a book to love....If I had the money, I'd give a copy to every church and every preacher in America. Not for the superb sermons or the brilliant, human exposition, but because the mission and spirit of Jesus are so plainly present in it no churchly Lazarus could remain entombed that heard its voice."
<br> - Clyde E. Fant, O. L., Walker Professor of Christian Studies, Stetson University
