Academy of Homiletics

Deliberative purpose statements, precise language translations, emphasis on exegetical integrity, proclaimer’s ethical identity, theological claims, interrogation of social issues, focused listener appeal, topic development, and contextualized delivery are a few of the standard homiletical methodologies.  What happens after the preparation, delivery and expected reception of the sermon?  What is the power and paucity of the preached word? How does the preacher know the effectiveness of the sermon? What is the life expectancy and applicability of the message in the lives of the listeners?  The theme for the 2023 Academy of Homiletics meeting is “After the Sermon.”
