Newborn Bards: A Theology of Preaching for Unitarian Universalists

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $4.99
Though preaching matters greatly to Unitarian Universalists, we have not seriously engaged the theology of preaching. This book corrects this error by explaining the major themes of current Unitarian Universalist theology and applying these themes to the traditional questions of homiletics: the church, God, text, worship, and authority. Major homiletic thinkers are analyzed from a UU perspective, and suggestions are made for how to put these theories of preaching to use in our context. The author, the Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson-Doyle, has 10 years of parish ministry experience. He received his D.Min. in Preaching from Iliff School of Theology in 2010.

    Matthew Johnson-Doyle’s new book is a gift to Unitarian Universalist ministers and all they serve. Written with clarity, depth and grace, Rev. Johnson-Doyle gives us an original and compelling theological foundation for the art of preaching as spiritual practice. Johnson-Doyle demonstrates why and how preaching matters, how it can help a community see more clearly, feel more deeply, and act with greater courage and compassion. Sharon D. Welch, Provost and Professor of Religion and Society, Meadville Lombard Theological School

    Rev. Johnson-Doyle's writing is crisp, organized and engaging. He explores the past and possible future of Unitarian Universalist preaching and theology, and the many concepts at their intersections. His writing style encourages the reader to explore more about each concept in detail, yet he stays focused on the topic of preaching. A book very different from preaching texts used in the last several years, this text will challenge both professors and students. Highly recommended and very well-priced.
