A practical, interactive introduction to the pmiicularities of Christian preaching from the Old Testament. Special emphasis will be placed on biblical exegesis, hermeneutics, and preaching with sensitivity to the varied forms of OT literature-narrative, saga, law, prophetic oracles, wisdom material, etc. Students will exegete passages, prepare sermons (preaching twice), learn new skills and ideas and interact with the sermons of others, both peers and role models.
