Product Description

By exploring the historical, theoretical, and practical elements of the tradition of testimony, Anna Carter Florence seeks in this much-anticipated book to establish the historical and contemporary validity of womens preaching and to introduce testimony to a new generation of preachers and teachers. She begins with the stories of three women whose preaching was often described as testimony: Anne Hutchinson (1591-1643), Sarah Osborn (1714-1796), and Jarena Lee (1783- ?). Then, reflecting upon the work of Paul Ricoeur, Walter Brueggemann, Rebecca Chopp, and Mary McClintock Fulkerson, she examines biblical theological perspectives on testimony. Finally, she explores how testimony plays out in a preachers life, offering constructive proposals for preaching as well as helpful guidelines, direction, and exercises.

Anna Carter Florence is Assistant Professor of Preaching at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA
