Summer module, three hours. Dr. Hughes.

PP 2 Homiletics Through the Ages: Directed Readings from the Apostolic Age to the Present Day

  • To familiarize students with homiletics in the Christian tradition through readings of primary texts from the apostolic church to the present
  • To provide a historical framework for the development of expository preaching
  • To edify preachers by looking at powerful models embodied in the texts
  • To integrate theory with the practice of expository preaching in the student's home context

This course is a directed reading of an extensive body of primary and relevant secondary literature. The emphasis is thus on the student's own engagement with a wide body of texts. In dialogue with other students as well as the professor, who will guide discussion as well as provide the general framework, the course intends to engender not only critical analysis and evaluation of historical and current works in the field of homiletics, but also to integrate these evaluations with the student's practice of expository preaching.

Summer module, three hours. Dr. Hughes.
