Preaching the new and the now by David Buttrick( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
"According to David Buttrick, the image of the kingdom of God has all but disappeared in twentieth-century preaching, erased by two world wars and the Great Depression as well as by our focus on the biblical past and the isolation of biblical history from human history. Buttrick believes that as we move into a new century the church and preachers must recapture the kingdom's farsighted vision and find forgotten social courage." "In this book, he critiques the state of the church, society, and preaching today and discusses Old and New Testament understandings of the kingdom of God and the tensions between kingdom and church. The kingdom is now, he argues, and he explores the homiletical task of preaching the kingdom today."--Jacket

Speaking conflict : stories of a controversial Jesus by David Buttrick( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 155 libraries worldwide
"Conflict stories appear throughout the synoptic gospels, and although they are familiar and dramatic, the stories are particularly challenging for pastors to teach and preach. In this book, homiletician David Buttrick delves into each conflict story, analyzing the particular controversy at hand and highlighting problems that these passages pose for preachers - including anti-Jewish attitudes in the text and the authenticity of such stories. He helps readers correct long-standing biases, shows how many of these controversies are still with us, and provides sample sermons to demonstrate how these stories might be preached more effectively."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 151 libraries worldwide
The renewed homiletic by O. Wesley Allen( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 120 libraries worldwide
"The major shift in the study and practice of preaching in the 1970s and 1980s, labeled the New Homiletic, turned toward the hearer. The purpose of preaching focused less on persuasion and more on transformation, less on asserting religious truths and more on offering an experience of the gospel. Instead of viewing language as referential, its creative, evocative nature began to be emphasized. Thus homiletical strategies utilizing induction, celebration, story, narrative structures, and moves replaced a deductive, propositional approach to preaching. Now three-and-a-half decades after this shift began, preachers recognize that the homiletical landscape has continued to evolve in ways that influence how preaching ought to be done£for example, the rise of postmodernity, the decline of the mainline church, cultural pluralism, and biblical and theological illiteracy. Those considered to be the pillars of the New Homiletic £ David Buttrick, Fred Craddock, Eugene Lowry, Henry Mitchell, and Charles Rice £ discuss how to change their homiletical approach for a new day. Each of these distinguished scholars offers a lecture describing how his mind has changed, preaches a sermon reflecting these changes, and participates in a panel discussion with younger respondents"--Publisher description
Beyond heterosexism in the pulpit by Emily Askew( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
This book is not another volume attempting to persuade the reader of the rights of gays and lesbians in society and in the church. Instead it assumes the reader is a minister or student of ministry who already has a passion for this issue and is looking for better strategies to speak out of this passion in the pulpit. Too often progressive preachers avoid speaking about issues related to sexual orientation out of fear of rejection from the congregation, or address them in ways that unintentionally alienates either gay or straight hearers. Askew and Allen offer preachers tools for recognizing a

Homiletical Theology : Preaching as Doing Theology by David Schnasa Jacobsen( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Karl Barth famously argued that all theology is sermon preparation. But what if all sermon preparation is actually theology? This book pursues a thoroughgoing theological vision for the practice of preaching as a way of doing theology. The idea is not just that homiletics is the realm of theological application. That would leave preaching in the position of simply implementing a theology already arrived at. Instead, the vision in these pages is of a form of theology that begins with preaching itself: its practice, its theories, and its contexts. Homiletical theology is thus a unique way of doi
