About this title
In a balanced blending of the practical, the theoretical, and the theological, Charles L. Barlow explores the basic techniques of preaching. In describing the 'preaching moment,' he shows how the preacher as a 'listener who speaks' can aid the congregation and be a more effective communicator. Dr. Barlow outlines four principles for the listening preacher: noting the movement of thought in preaching and being prepared to move with it; attending to the specific contexts that give rise to the movement of thought in preaching; allowing the preacher to hear the 'claim' made upon him or her and his or her listeners when he/she preaches; and listening for the explicit or implicit kerygma that gives coherence to the sermon as a whole. Various technical aspects of preaching, such as voice and articulation, 'body language,' and clarity are discussed. Barlow presents a methodology for evaluating sermon delivery in light of the four principles. Throughout the presentation, tasks and exercises are provided to aid listening and improve performance for the reader. An informative guide, The Practical Moment is testimony to the author's expertise in speech as well as homilies.About the Author:
