Homiletical Options

KNP5361HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2009  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2007 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course is designed to help advanced students gain a grasp of contemporary options in homiletic theory. While a brief introduction to the background of the field in its present state will be part of the course, for the most part students will become familiar with the work of those figures in the field who have embraced what some have called 'the new homiletic'. While these figures represent a great variety of theoretical positions, the one thing that comes closest to uniting them is the so-called 'turn to the hearer'. As a result, students will leave this course with a good grasp of the field of contemporary homiletic theory, an appreciation for the revolution in preaching method of the last thirty years, and a sense of the 'theological turns' that may be emerging out of it.
