Many different factors can affect preaching . . . including the character of the person behind the pulpit. In this fascinating study, Resner discusses two dominant approaches to homiletics---the rhetorical method typified by Augustine and the theological approach depicted by Barth. A thought-provoking look at the relationship between preachers and the message they proclaim. 205 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.
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.
