Product Description

In contrast to the widely popular interest in narrative styles, Professor Thompson believes Paul's letters offer a different and valid model for preaching today. He clearly demonstrates how the manner of preaching used in the pre-Christian culture of Paul is both appropriate and effective in our contemporary post-Christian culture. Unlike most books on preaching, this book does not focus on homiletic technique, but instead on the goal of preaching-a needed missing component in contemporary homiletic discussion. Because Paul's letters are essentially sermons delivered to communities in differing situations, they provide an important witness and model not only for the individual sermon, but also to the larger purpose of preaching.

    This is a very thorough and academic work in understanding Pauls homiletical style. This is very appropriate to the homiletics class that I am currently taking; however, I feel this work presumes that the reader knows the all the authors and works he mentions. This work does not speak to the everyday pastor who ministers to the everyday person. I would wish the author were a little less academic in his approach if he were to make this book a useful tool for the preacher/teacher. If you are looking at very scholastic work, then you have found a goldmine.
