KNP5037 – Preaching and Biblical Method
In the past fifty years significant developments have taken place within biblical studies. A renewed focus on method and the task of interpretation has implications for the preacher in her/his weekly task of expounding the scriptures. This course will examine these more recent methods, inlcuding post holocaust, feminist, social science, postcolonial and empire studies and discuss their implications for preaching the biblical text. The course will focus on the intersection of these newer methods and the parallel developments within the “New Homiletic” since the 1960’s.
