Endorsements & Reviews-

Camery-Hoggatt understands the complex interaction between readers and biblical texts, and he has accomplished an astounding feat for biblical preachers. He has taken apart the "Swiss watch" of biblical interpretation, showing all the gears, levers, and flywheels and patiently explaining how each one operates. Then, even more amazingly, he has put the whole thing back together again and made it work, producing fascinating examples of the text-to-sermon process.
--Thomas G. Long
Francis Landey Patton Professor of Preaching and Worship, Princeton Theological Seminary

. . . This is an important resource for those concerned with the negotiation of meaning in biblical texts in the service of the people of God.
--Joel B. Green
Associate Professor of Theology, Boston COllege

. . . this study demonstrates that a reader-response approach has significant implications for both exegesis and exposition. Indeed, it helps link these two "moments" in the pastor's overall homiletical endeavor . . .
--W. Randolph Tate
Associate Professor of Theology, Evangel College

. . . ought to be required reading in every seminary homiletics class. Every church board would be well served by seeing that their pastor has a copy . . .
--Charles Hedrick
Professor of Religious Studies and Distinguished Scholar, Southwest Missouri State University
