Reviews - What do customers think about Purposes of Preaching?

Helpful spectrum  Aug 28, 2006
This collection of essays by ten prominent homileticians offers ten quite different responses to the question, "What do we preachers think we're doing?" The writers of the essays represent a range of mostly mainline Protestant traditions, and it is disappointing that there are no Roman Catholic or Eastern Orthodox voices included. On the other hand, there is a good balance between men and women, and the perspectives they represent range well beyond simple denominational distinctions.

Contributers (with a grossly inadequate summary of their perspectives) are: Ronald J. Allen (a conversational model), Charles L. Campbell (prophetic preaching), Jana L. Childers (incarnational), Teresa L. Fry Brown (Holy Spirit-charged), Lucy Lind Hogan (rhetorical--i.e., contextual), John S. McClure (redeeming language), Christine Smith (liberation, inviting the marginalized), Thomas H. Troeger (prayer-based), Mary Donovan Turner (Hebrew Bible prophets as models), and Paul Scott Wilson (theology-based).

The essays range from academic in style and substance to evocative and experience-based, offering a variety in angles and emphases that will make this volume a useful tool for an introductory course in homiletics, or an aid to reflection for a more experienced preacher or teacher of preachers.
