Item description for Speaking of God: Reading and Preaching the Word of God by Jerry Camery-Hoggatt...
Responding to the recent call for a closer interaction between biblical text and sermon, "Speaking of God" bridges the gap by describing the rhetorical factors of language in terms that make sense to the beginning or experienced exegete. The result is an instructive and compelling invitation to read and preach the biblical text in a fresh, thought-provoking way.
"Camery-Hoggatt understands the complex interaction between readers and biblical texts, and he as accomplished an astounding feat for biblical preachers. He has taken apart the "Swiss watch" of biblical interpretation, showing us all the gears, levers, and flywheels and patiently explaining how each one operates. Then, even more amazingly, he has put the whole thing back together again and made it work, producing fascinating examples of the text-to-sermon process." " Thomas G. Long, Francis Landey Patton Professor of Preaching and Worship, Princeton Theological Seminary
." . . This is an important resource for those concerned with the negotiation of meaning in biblical texts in the service of the people of God." " Joel B. Green, Associate Professor of New Testament, American Baptist Seminary of the West and Graduate Theological Union
