The literature in homiletics has been growing in the last decades. Some issues have been raised, which can help today’s preachers to build their own understanding of what preaching is. We all have methods to prepare our sermons, what do they say about our theology of preaching? Why is it important to turn to the hearer, and what attitudes does it bring on the side of the preacher? Can storytelling help a sermon to convert its hearer? Preaching builds the community, how can we take this dimension into account? To deepen these issues, you will write some small sermons, and we will discuss these topics with stimulating articles and chapters which have been commented on and discussed by the homiletics community.
