The question of what to do with the biblical text in the sermon is perennial. Biblical scholarship constantly evolves and grows, making it hard even for biblical scholars themselves to apply the latest insights in their preaching. The average pastor doesn’t have time to keep up with the changes in biblical studies and, as a result, often defaults to interpretive methods learned in (increasingly distant) seminary years. Preaching the Word addresses those needs by surveying recent developments in biblical studies with an eye to applying them in preaching the Gospel of John. Noted New Testament Scholar and homiletician Karoline Lewis lays out these recent interpretive tools and methods, demonstrating their application to preaching using specific passages in the Fourth Gospel.

Karoline M. Lewis is the Marbury E. Anderson Chair of Biblical Preaching at Luther Seminary in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lewis is the author of A Lay Preacher's Guide: How to Craft a Faithful Sermon, Embody: Five Keys to Leading with Integrity, SHE: Five Keys to Unlock the Power of Women in Ministry (including an accompanying facilitator guide, participant guide, and DVD), and John: Fortress Biblical Preaching Commentaries, as well as numerous articles and book chapters. She was one of the one hundred religious scholars in the United States to contribute to the Values and Voices campaign.
