Item description for Preacher and Cross: Person and Message in Theology and Rhetoric by Andre Resner, Jr....

Numerous books are available on the meaning and methods of preaching, but nothing has been written that specifically addresses the character of those who would preach. Preacher and Cross helps fill this gap in homiletic studies by examining the relationship between the message of Christian proclamation and the preacher, with specific attention to ministerial character and the preacher's use of self in sermons. Andr? Resner discusses the two dominant approaches to homiletics-the rhetorical approach typified by Augustine and the theological approach typified by Barth-and then compares and contrasts these approaches to what the apostle Paul says on the issue. Essential reading for those involved in ministry, this work offers invaluable insights into the relationship between preachers and the message they proclaim.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preacher and Cross: Person and Message in Theology and Rhetoric?

A thought-provoking look at the message of preaching  Apr 30, 1999
Dr. Resner was one of my professors at Abilene Christian University, and it is my impression that his primary concern in the field of preaching is message over form. What is the message of preaching? Resner contributes to a field which over the last few decades has been more concerned with the mechanics of preaching, rather that the content of the message. Do not continue a preaching ministry until you let this book become a conversation partner. An outstanding contribution.
