Product Description

Whenever we think in a systematic manner, we are doing theology. When we keep coming back to a favorite passage, or repeat an idea or theme, we are preaching one part of the canon vs. another. Allen puts our preaching in an overall perspective, so we can better discover what our individual angle is and evaluate its limitations.

Ronald J. Allen is the Nettie Sweeney and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Preaching and New Testament at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.

Publisher's Description

Preachers are not simple representatives of a particular theological world. Each preacher manifests characteristics that arise from that person's particular approach to life, theology, and preaching. Rather than teaching how one can preach theology or deal with particular theological issues from the pulpit, Ronald J. Allen shows how preaching is informed by the preacher's own theology.A valuable introduction to preaching, Thinking Theologically does not advocate for, nor is it written from, a particular theological stance. Rather it provides historical background and explores major theological perspectives so that preachers can grasp their own understanding of authority, the Bible, the relationship of God to the sermon, and the purpose of the sermon.Finally, the book illustrates the unique characteristics of sermons preached from a particular theological viewpoint and shows what is gained and lost in each approach. Each chapter features a brief bibliography for further reading in its topic area.

Series Information

Each of the volumes in the Elements of Preaching series offers brief, open-ended introductions to the basics of preaching from diverse perspectives. Never before have seminary students and pastors had such a solid homiletical tool to help them develop the insights, framework, and skills necessary for powerful, transformative preaching. The series editor is O. Wesley Allen Jr., Professor of Homiletics and Worship at Lexington Theological Seminary.
