Principles of Expository Preaching
In Principles of Expository Preaching, students will be introduced to the value and methods of expositional preaching. Special focus will be given to preaching the text of scripture with accuracy and clarity and in a way that is consistent with the genre of the sermonic passage. As a result of reading, research, writing, presentation, peer-review, and class discussion, the student will be able to a) interpret texts consistently with appropriate attention given to genre characteristics; b) identify marks of good expository preaching among contemporary preachers; and c) produce expository sermons from narrative, poetry, and discourse texts. 4 credit hours.
