Summary:

This course provides an introduction to the skills and craft of preaching by exploring basic approaches to preaching and sermon preparation, attentive listening to a variety of preachers and practical assignments.  This practical approach will be framed by a theological understanding which will take into account the elements that the preacher must be aware of in preaching including: appropriate handling of the biblical text, the life and ministry of the local church, the values and suppositions of the prevailing culture, and finally the preacher’s own world view.
