Overview

It is a widespread idea that the roots of the Christian sermon can be found in the Jewish Derasha. But the story of the interrelation of the two homiletical traditions, Jewish and Christian, from New Testament times to the present day is still untold. This book offers the papers of the first international conference (Bamberg, Germany, 6th to 8th March 2007) which brought together Jewish and Christian scholars to discuss Jewish and Christian homiletics in their historical development and relationship and to sketch out common homiletical projects.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This collection contains a number of interesting perspectives both in the historical section and in the essays on current challenges.The contributions raise several issues worth pondering for Christian homiletics, hermeneutics and Jewish Studies."C. Stenschke in: Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses (EThL) 86/2010 "This collection of compelling essays will be of particular interest to those who preach, to those who train preachers and to those interested in the interrelationship between tradition, hermeneutics and actualizing of the text of the HB/OT."E. R. Hayes in: Book List - Society for Old Testament Study 2009 "I highly recommend this volume because it probes the rich and complex history of preaching in Judaism and Christianity and also suggests points of mutual challenge and reciprocity."Dawn Ottoni Wilhelm in: Homiletic 2/2008
