Preaching in An Age of Globalization

Eunjoo Mary Kim

Preaching in An Age of Globalization

Eunjoo Mary Kim

$45.99

Paperback
There are many books on the market that address how culture, race, gender, or economic status affect the way preachers preach and congregations hear sermons.

Preaching in an Age of Globalization is the first book to address preaching that promotes solidarity across these differences. Preaching needs to be targeted to specific contexts.

  • But how can a preacher handle specific contexts when we live in a globalized world?
  • What does local context mean and who defines it?
  • What is the proper context for an all white congregation in a racially mixed neighborhood?
Kim develops the concept of "trans-contextual preaching" to show how preachers can respect diversity and the global connections that every congregation has. She develops a new theology of preaching, examines the modes of biblical interpretation appropriate for trans-contextual preaching, and explores designs for sermons in this globalized world. Sample sermons from the author provide excellent illustrations.
