Sacred Rhetoric: Preaching as a Theological and Pastoral Practice of the Church Paperback - 2005

by Michael Pasquarello


From the publisher

Modern approaches to preaching today are largely fixated on "how-to's" - how to make preaching more relevant, more interesting, more entertaining. Michael Pasquarello suggests that this fixation may stem from a preaching imagination more beholden to technical, scientific reason than theological wisdom. Rather than devising new techniques or strategies for effective speaking, Pasquarello offers something more salutary - portraits of ten exemplary preachers from the Christian tradition. Included in Pasquarello's gallery are Augustine of Hippo, Gregory the Great, Benedict, Bernard of Clairvaux, Bonaventure, Thomas Aquinas, Erasmus, Hugh Latimer, Martin Luther, and John Calvin. These excellent preachers conceived of Christian speech as a unique theological practice learned through prayerful attention to the Bible and aimed at communion with God. Sacred Rhetoric invites readers to join an extended conversation with the past in order to become faithful preachers of the gospel in a post-Christian society. Preachers, seminarians, and students of Christian history will find much to learn from Pasquarello's fresh perspective and passion for the past.

First line

Throughout their history Christians have generally read, spoken, and prayed the narrative of Scripture to guide, correct, and edify their faith, worship, and practice as essential aspects of their ongoing struggle to live faithfully before the Triune God.
