About-

Preaching is a personal event: a minister or speaker prepares his or her sermon and presents it to the congregation. Preaching, however, also includes the Bible as a central source; this source comes from and provides a basis for the believing community. The preaching event is also personal for the members of the congregation, who are not simply recipients of the preacher's words based on a biblical text. The congregation is involved personally in that each individual interprets the words and the text. What is said in the text, in the sermon, and the listener's response represent parts of each one's testimony. Testimony runs throughout preaching, the Bible, and the congregation. It is in this interchange of preacher, text, and listener that not just one testimony develops but many testimonies are present.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"People do not resist the call to the ministry because they are afraid they will have to prepare church budgets. No, like so many who went before them, they do not feel adequate to accept the responsibility of proclaiming God's word. I encourage all, from neophyte to seasoned preachers, to engage in this fascinating conversation. These preachers and scholars challenge us to reflect upon the crucial issues of identity and authority in the pulpit."
--Lucy Lind Hogan
Hugh Latimer Elderdice Professor of Preaching and Worship
Wesley Theological Seminary

"This volume provides a much-needed insight into the preaching event. Its title aptly reflects the authors' firm belief that text, preacher, and congregant are all active participants in interpreting and understanding Scripture. Divergent voices have contributed essays, yielding a collection that addresses many kinds of preaching events."
--Nancy L. deClaisse-Walford
Carolyn Ward Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages
McAfee School of Theology
