This changes everything because the sermon ceases to be something a preacher constructs, like a thesis or even a painting. While similar in many ways, narratives and stories are distinct. Condition: New. While the sermon as narrative has become conventional preaching wisdom, it is largely misunderstood.

Instead, it is more like a piece of music - something a preacher plays within intuitively, to a constant beat - time after time, week after week.

Therefore, to think of narrative preaching as merely one of many homiletical styles is to misunderstand and reduce the nature of the sermon.

The Liberating Pulpit

Wipf & Stock Pub #ad - Westminster John Knox Press. Condition: New. Buy with confidence! Millions of books sold! Early christian preachers had much to say on issues such as the origins and proper use of wealth, the rights and duties of the poor and rich, and the nature of ownership. An account of liberation theology's impact on the task of preaching is offered by two historians of doctrine who are intimately aware of the need to be open to marginalized perspectives in the church.

Often used as a text in preaching courses, 'the liberating Pulpit' helps to clarify and to bridge the gap between those whose preaching and hermeneutics tend to be more traditional and the various minorities who tend to read Scripture in a different way. The gonzalezes recapture this early christian spirit offering concrete ways that the interpretation of specific biblical texts may be enriched or corrected in order to speak directly to the whole life of the whole church.
