[T]he music analogy with tension and resolution for sermons was good. This book deals mainly with the sermon form as narrative form. Narrative form has beginning, middle, and end. Narrative form includes tension in the form of crisis or conflict leading to resolution. Lowry points out that sermons are events over time, more like the process of painting a picture than the presentation of a painted picture. Some good ideas here worth considering about sermonic form and even delivery, but not so much as to sermon content.
