Author Bio

Thomas H. Troeger, Lantz Professor emeritus Yale Divinity School and Institute of Sacred Music, has written 24 books in the fields of preaching, poetry, hymnody and worship. His most recent books include: Song that Blesses Earth: Hymn texts, carols, and poems; A Sermon Workbook: Exercises in the Art and Craft of Preaching (with Nora Tubbs Tisdale); Music as Prayer: The Theology and Practice of Church Music.  He is also a flutist and a poet whose work appears in the hymnals of most denominations and is frequently set as choral anthems. Professor Troeger has a B.A. Yale University; B.D. Colgate Rochester Divinity School.  In 2014 the University of Basel, Switzerland, awarded him an honorary doctorate in theology for his international work in homiletics and his development of "a contemporary religious language which does justice to both aesthetic and theological demands."  In 2016 he gave the Beecher Lectures at Yale on which his latest book, The End of Preaching, is based.  Ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church and as a minister in the Presbyterian Church, he is now retired and living in Falmouth, Maine.
