In this cutting-edge homiletical study, Marianne Gaarden offers new perspectives for understanding how listeners create meaning when hearing a sermon. Drawing on sociological, psychological, and other empirical research, Gaarden presents the notion of the Third Room of Preaching, the place where the preacher's words and the listener's prior experiences come together to create a surplus of meaning outside of both the preacher's intent and the listener's frame of reference. The preacher cannot control the production of meaning but must surrender to the process, giving up the role of creator of meaning in order to become a vessel and a tool for meaning's creation. Gaarden's insights challenge conventional understandings of preaching and invite homileticians to reflect on the implications for the sermon as an act of communication. The book includes an appendix that helps to facilitate the Third Room model in homiletics classes.
Marianne Gaarden is a theological consultant in the Diocese of Elsinore, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Denmark. She taught homiletics from 2006-2014 at the Pastoral Institute in Copenhagen and Aarhus University in Denmark. An active member of the Academy of Homiletics, she has contributed to several books and has written for numerous publications in the area of homiletics.
