PT 550 Homiletics I

Description: This course is designed to introduce students to the art and craft of biblical preaching in the Western Rite, particularly within Lutheran and Anglican expressions of the Divine Liturgy. Students will become familiar with 20th- and 21st-century homiletic theories and their doctrinal origins as they begin to design and deliver sermons to contemporary Christian assemblies. Students will work with the interplay of orality and literacy as they acquire competencies in addressing the lives of Christians in this day. By the completion of the course, students will have learned the basics of the classic law/gospel dialectic and be able to use it as a hermeneutical resource for the shaping of their preaching from the Holy Scriptures.
