The New Homiletic

EMP5304HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2013  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

The New Homiletic refers to a revolution in homiletics that began in the 1950s. We will explore its emergence from the "old homiletic" and its emphases on a turn to the hearer, organic form, narrative plot, horizontal notions of authority, recovery of the Bible for the pulpit, inductive sermons, stories making their own points in their own ways, contextual understandings of truth, dynamic and tensive notions of language, and sermons as transformational experience. Key homileticians will be considered as we consider the relevance of the NH for today. 

Schedule: Wednesday, 9:00 to 12:00
