The Homiletic of All Believers

O Wesley Allen (Jr)

The Homiletic of All Believers

O Wesley Allen (Jr)

$45.99

Paperback
Allen proposes an approach to preaching that is rooted in the view of the congregation as a community of conversation and in which the spirit of the sermon is dialogical. In this context, preaching becomes a means of grounding and guiding the community's conversations, the result being faithful interpretation.

- Publisher

Preaching, says professor and author O. Wesley Allen Jr., should be considered as a form of conversation. The church, after all, is a community of conversation that exists in part to interpret God's purposes for the world and to participate in those purposes. The idea of the sermon as a conversation, then, is not simply a style or form of preaching but an integral expression of the nature and purpose of the church.
