P 68 Preaching as Dialogue: Is the Sermon a Sacred Cow? (2003)

It is often argued that preaching is at the heart of the proclamation and teaching of the gospel - but at the same time it is assumed that preaching is normally a static monologue of a certain style.

This provocative study goes back and looks carefully at the way preaching is understood in the New Testament and how this challenges contemporary assumptions. It concludes by suggesting ways to make preaching a genuine two-way conversation. It will be of interest to anyone concerned to let New Testament practice shape their pastoral ministry.
