The Web of Preaching: New Options in Homiletic Method Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Preaching is not as simple as it may appear. The preacher today is confronted with a dizzying array of homiletic methods and approaches, each holding important insights into how to proclaim the Good News. While pastors wish to learn from these different ways of preaching, they often do not know where to begin (Who are the best representatives of a given approach? How do the different methods relate to one another? How has the preaching scene changed in recent years?). In The Web of Preaching, Richard Eslinger addresses these and other questions about contemporary approaches to preaching.

Surveying the most important current theories of preaching, he argues that no homiletic method can be understood on its own. The different schools of thought on preaching all intersect at such common points as Scripture, narrative, and the role of preaching in worship. A strength in one compensates for a weakness in another, and seen together they form one comprehensive web of preaching.

This book is a follow-up to Eslinger's earlier A New Hearing, which has been a standard text in preaching courses since its publication in 1987.

Synopsis:

Eslinger delivers an in-depth introduction to an array of contemporary approaches to preaching, including representatives of each method. This book demonstrates not only how these approaches differ but also how they relate to one another. It includes African-American and other ethnic minority perspectives. (July)
