Preaching and Worshipby Thomas H. Troeger
The Preaching and Its Partners series, edited by Paul Scott Wilson, explores the interaction of preaching and other theological disciplines in a way that will help preachers and students of preaching to fully integrate the sermon into the life of the church and the range of Christian scholarship. It is not enough to say that preaching must be relevant to the culture or that worship should reflect culturally relevant forms. We must find the ways that the preaching and worship of the church can transform and correct the culture. At the same time, we must be sensitive to the ways that the culture can make the gospel message and the practice of preaching and worship more relevant than ever. At times, culture needs to correct the ways that preaching and worship occur, to make them more faithful to the communication of God's message in this day and age. Troeger examines how culture means an involvement of all the senses. Preaching the word is more than just saying words. It is all the sights, sounds, and movements that reach the worshipers and how those sights and sounds and movements are perceived. On the basis of a fully embodied theology of worship and preaching, Troeger explores how worship and preaching involve our whole bodies and the nuances of contemporary culture to create meaning for ourselves.
