Description

In the beginning was … the sermon? Both Martin Luther and the modern Lutheran preacher work with the foundational assumption that preaching is not just biblical but is, in truth, the Word of God. How does this theological conviction about the nature and purpose of preaching inform the preacher’s exegesis of the Bible? What role does the context of the hearer of this Word play in such biblical interpretation? How does one reconcile the exegesis of the academy with the exegesis in the pulpit? Professor of Practical Theology Dr. Glenn Nielsen, a long-time homiletician, will reflect on the exegetical scope of the preaching task, while Professor of Historical Theology Dr. Erik Herrmann, will explore how Luther fundamentally reshaped both the history of exegesis and of preaching.
