His relaxed, conversational style will engage readers, and the insights of this master preacher into both scripture and modern life will leave them thirsting for more. Virtual Incarnation? is a superlative collection of sermons -- it is dont-miss reading not only for ministers and teachers, but also for personal worship and devotions.This is intelligent preaching. With refreshing theological, biblical, and psychological content, Kincaids sermons are a mixture of keen human observation and faithful reflection.Albert M. PennybackerFormer Associate General SecretaryNational Council of ChurchesWhat makes a good preacher, like a good poet, is the unforeseen image or phrase that catches us by surprise and causes us to look at our life from a different angle. In sermons we hope for everyday things rendered extraordinary by a word that speaks beyond itself. In this collection, you will find such words that can bring us closer to the presence of God. Kincaid speaks in plain prose that is grounded in the poetry of the soul.Malcolm L. WarfordProfessor of MinistryLexington Theological SeminaryElegant in their simplicity, poignant and pointed in their relevancy to human experience, Kincaids sermons demonstrate homiletical excellence worthy of emulation. They are well reasoned, biblically grounded, pertinent to faith development, and always connected to the Christians concern for justice. I gladly recommend them for spiritual nourishment and as models of the best in contemporary preaching.Nancy Jo KemperExecutive DirectorKentucky Council of ChurchesWilliam B.
