Product Excerpts and Related Resources


“Creating vivid scenes from personal experience, Biblical narratives, and contemporary happenings, Alyce McKenzie offers valuable lessons for preachers to proclaim the Gospel. Engaging with her work will help preachers craft memorable and thought-provoking sermons.” -Bishop Michael McKee, North Texas Annual Conference, The United Methodist Church

“Dr. Alyce McKenzie’s “Making a Scene in the Pulpit” utilizes ‘scenes’ from scripture, real life and one’s own experiences to craft sermons that help the Word that is preached become the Word that is heard. In addition to providing this basic homiletical tool, she shares preachers, resources, sermon examples, bibliographies and tools for incorporating the use of scenes in sermons. Quite simply, Dr. McKenzie’s latest book is ‘must-read’ for all who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an age of short attention spans, biblical illiteracy, and digital chatter.”
--Gary E. Mueller, Resident Bishop, Arkansas Conference, The United Methodist Church
