"These poignant and transparent wrestlings of a young preacher in the early 21st century suggest that preaching is not a dying privilege, but a powerful and democratic engagement with truthfulness, an art form still emerging in our days.
–Rev. Dr. Mark Belletini, Senior Minister
First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, Ohio
“In the tradition of Emerson’s Divinity School Address, Nate Walker’s Exorcising Preaching is not so much a how-to manual as it is an urgent manifesto, a passionate call for preachers to rid themselves of cant, cliché, complacency, and all that separates them from their audience (the congregation) and their subject (the Sacred).”
–Rev. Dr. Robert Hardies, Senior Minister
All Souls Church, Unitarian, Washington, D.C.
“Nate Walker is boldly creative—a visionary, on-the-edge kind of thinker. This book made me rethink preaching’s role today for contemporary worshipers.”
– Rev. Meg Riley, Senior Minister
