Preaching And The Personal from the Author: J. Dwayne Howell. Preaching and the Personal' is a collection of papers that have been presented at the Society of Biblical Literature in sessions sponsored by the Homiletics and Biblical Studies section. The Homiletics and Biblical Studies section encourages dialogue among scholars in both fields who share an interest in critical exegesis, its various methods, and the unique hermeneutical and theological problems inherent to the relationship between biblical interpretation and proclamation. The concept for this book began with the panel discussion "Preaching and the Personal: Prophecy, Witness and Testimony" at the 2010 meeting in Atlanta. Each paper explores various ways the personal can be found in the biblical text, in the preacher, and in the congregation.

Witness Of A Fragile Servant from the Author: Charles B. Bugg. Many pastors come to ministry with the potentially lethal combination of low self-esteem and high expectations of themselves and others. While the minister is set aside to preach, he or she is not immune to the same struggles that everyone faces. How they deal with themselves as persons is reflected in their proclamations as pastor and preacher. "Witness of a Fragile Servant" looks at both the preparation of the preacher and the sermon. It tries to call ministers to care for themselves as well as to cultivate effective sermons.

Press Your Claim from the Author: Dr Evalina Huggins. Good preachers are always strong. They can cope with anything life throws their way. They never lose their cool. Their faith never wavers. They never grow weary. They are never frightened. This author asserts that this is far from the truth. The Shepherd bleeds just like the sheep. As a preacher herself, Huggins once thought she had to be like that super-spiritual, always caring for others, and so close to God that nothing in life could shake her. When she suffered a painful loss, she numbed herself and put on a stoic face. Later, suddenly blindsided by the grief she had suppressed, she realized that although she was a preacher, she was also human. Not only that, but God could use her experience to help her preach with an authenticity and power she had not felt before. Being in touch with her own struggles drew her closer to Jesus; by weaving them into her sermons, directly or indirectly, she could show how God's presence manifests itself in an ordinary person's life. Now, she challenges other preachers to do the same. Our worship services, places of worship, and music styles may change over the years, but powerful, passionate preaching is timeless. Here is one preacher courageous enough to recognize her God-given humanity and allow it to contribute to her proclamation of the Gospel, making for a richer, deeper experience for all those who read the words of this book and hear her voice in the preaching moment.

Written Text Becomes Living Word from the Author: Stephen Vincent DeLeers. Effective, significant preaching requires a Vision and a pondering of the question, How can I do what the Church expects of me?" The homily offers preachers a chance to live this question. Drawing from official Roman Catholic documents (1963–1995), Written Text Becomes Living Word summarizes this Vision for the homily as having five characteristics: personal, liturgical, inculturating, clarifying, and actualizing. DeLeers integrates and develops homiletic practice into this Vision by a detailed process for effective preparation and preaching. Written from the author's work with preachers, Written Text Becomes Living Word will help re-inspire the homiletic Vision as well as the spiritual life of those preaching. Chapters are: *Repairing the 'Accidents of History': Roman Catholic Restoration and Embrace of the Sunday Homily, - *The Evolution of the 'Restored' Homily,1963-93, - *A Roman Catholic Contribution to the Vision of Sunday Preaching, - *The Homily as Personal Word: Responsibility, Faith, and Love, - *The Homily as Liturgical Word: The Assembly and Its Sacred Ritual, - *The Homily as Inculturated Word: Correlating Experience and Tradition, - *The Homily as Clarifying Word: One Good Point, Clearly Made, - *The Homily as Actualizing Word: Written Text Becomes Living Word, - *Arriving at the Sunday Message: Three Necessary Encounters with the Word, - *From Message to Homily: Content, Structure, and Delivery, - *Ten Suggestions for Becoming a Better Preacher, - and an Appendix: Roman Catholic Documents on the Homily. Also includes an Index. Stephen Vincent DeLeers, DMin, is an author and consultant in homiletics. He has taught and lectured widely, and among his writings are those in The Bible Today, New Theology Review, andThe Theology of Priesthood, al published by Liturgical Press. He maintains a presence on the web at www.betterpreaching.org. "
