The Promise of Homiletical TheologyPreaching as Doing Theology
Imprint: Cascade Books
"With Jacobsen's unfolding vision of the preparation and practices that the sermon event encompasses, our eyes peer into the many theological challenges and practical wisdom of honed preaching methods and discernment. Thriving between the work of constructive and practical theology, Jacobsen has gathered a handful of prominent homiletics scholars to explore the enterprise of preaching as doing theology that is conversation praxis at its own theological roots. And we learn profoundly from their doing!"
--Dale P. Andrews, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
"This book is an invitation to the feast of open-ended, rich theological discourse on homiletics, prepared by seven lead homileticians, with their brilliant theological and homiletical insights. Finally comes this volume, long overdue, an invaluable resource for understanding the theological identity of homiletics from multiple angles. Creative and thought-provoking approaches to understanding homiletical theology, such as the integration of preaching and liturgy, make this book a must for teaching and learning about homiletics."
--Eunjoo Mary Kim, Iliff School of Theology, Denver, CO
"In this important book, an all-star cast of homileticians explores a bold claim: preaching does not simply consume or use theology; preaching does theology in its own provisional, conversational mode. From diverse perspectives, the authors examine the constructive, practical, and methodological aspects of a homiletical theology. Along the way, they invite us to new perspectives on the nature of both theology and preaching."
