In this introductory text, Lucy Lind Hogan helps the reader understand the theological task of becoming a preacher, the craft of writing the sermon, and the importance of communicating the gospel in the present world. In doing so, she creates a book that is more holistic than any other homiletics text currently on the market.

Hogan begins with a theological rationale for preaching, which serves as a basis for understanding the identity of the preacher. She then explores the context for preaching, showing how to interpret a scriptural text, design a sermon, and use illustrations and examples. She also discusses preaching for special occasions, the use of different technologies in preaching, and the importance of delivery. This book includes questions for reflection.

Lucy Lind Hogan is Hugh Latimer Elderdice Professor of Preaching and Worship at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washinton, D.C. She is an ordained Episcopal priest and serves as secretary for the Academy of Homiletics. She is the coauthor of Connecting with the Congregation and New Proclamation: Year C, Easter through Pentecost .
