Item description for Other-Wise Preaching: A Postmodern Ethic for Homiletics by John S. McClure...
Overview "John McClure has incorporated contemporary figures such as Levinas and Derrida into a theological vision of preaching that makes preaching a religious act of exposure for the other and of extraditing oneself to the neighbor for the preacher and for the congre-gation. The book includes one of the finest histories of modern preaching ever written and also one of the clearest interpretations of postmodern theory and its importance for Christian theology."
Publishers Description "John McClure's book is a double treasure. It tracks the way North American homileticians have responded to the cultural, social, and philosophical movements of recent decades, and it introduces the reader to both linguistic and ethical ways to deconstruct preaching." - Edward Farley, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee
