The Digital Age has changed just about
everything, including preaching. Now it’s
more important than ever to be heard. In
Talking God, Father Albert Cutié aims to
elevate the art of the sermon.

Talking God: Preaching To Contemporary Congregations
takes a strong and necessary stand about conveying
the modern spiritual message. “Preachers are taught to
preach, but they aren’t actually taught to speak,” says
Cutié. “Today’s preacher must indeed become a juggler:
able to balance the biblical message, grab the attention
of an often-distracted congregation, maintain a focused
and organized train of thought, seek new anecdotes and
stories that reflect the realities being lived today, know
when to use humor and when to be more solemn, and,
finally, connect it all in a way that comes across clearly
to those receiving the Word preached.” As a former
newspaper advice columnist and successful radio and
television talk show host, he’s also deeply immersed in
the Christian tradition. The book’s discussion of effective
preaching is backed by a survey regarding the influence
of new media on preaching; PadreAlberto.com.
