Material type: TextTextPublisher: Eugene, Or. : Wipf & Stock Publishers, c2011Description: x, 250 p. : ill. ; 23 cmISBN: 1610972740; 9781610972741Subject(s): Bible O.T -- Homiletical use | PreachingLOC classification: BS1191.5 | .D53 2011
Contents:
Introduction to the structured-repetition approach -- The process of uncovering the structure of a narrative text -- Other approaches to narrative analysis -- Describing and illustrating the five basic narrative structures -- Exegesis and interpretation of the narrative structure -- Sermon construction based on the exegetical, theological, and preaching ideas -- Sermont formats and the structured-repetition approach.
Summary: Written by a preacher for preachers who have to deal with the competing demands of pastoral ministry, this book takes some of the gains of the last seven decades of the literary approach to Scripture and applies them to a vital aspect of pastoral ministry--preaching. It presents a text-centered and theological approach to analyzing Old Testament narratives. This approach lays a solid basis for interpreting the narratives, and demonstrates that the movement from examining the text to crafting the sermon is a continuous process. Making use of many examples based on narrative passages from the Old Testament that facilitate grasping the methodology, this approach to sermon crafting is rooted in the text, shaped by the text, and is characterized by sound and controlled exegesis. It provides the pastor with an approach that enables Old Testament historical narrative to speak to Christian believers in contemporary society in a way that addresses the issues, concerns, and struggles faced by the church and Christians. The writer to the Hebrews says of righteous Abel, "though he is dead, he still speaks" (11:4). Similarly, these ancient stories do speak and can still speak today. To make them heard effectively and relevantly is the purpose of the book.
