The chapters each include a description of the theological movement in question, a description of how that movement might read a biblical text and move from that text to sermon, and a few critical questions. Movements covered include some of the standards: neo-orthodoxy, mutual critical correlation, postliberalism, process, evangelical... The tried-and-true major players are covered. The most disappointing chapter, however, is simply titled "Other Theologies and Preaching." Lumped into a single category are positions as diverse as McClure's use of Levinas to reshape pulpit ethics, radical orthodoxy, and Lose's confessional approach. None of these receives more than the most cursory treatment, and the section on how they might move toward the sermon is particularly disappointing. One could argue that this is the natural result of their novelty; the body of literature and sermons is just not there yet for a full analysis. It seems, though, that if they are important enough to include in such a survey there must be more than this that could be said about them, even given the book's intended length (much shorter and less detailed than McKim's work).Read more ›
