Perspectives on Preaching: the African-American Tradition

In the African-American preaching tradition, the purpose of preaching is to help people experience the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Within that rubric exist a range of homiletic methods, styles of delivery, theological perspectives and ethnic, gender and denominational commitments. To broaden the perspective and orientation of Christian preachers, the Academy of Preaching and Celebration at Christian Theological Seminary has prepared a resource page featuring six video lectures by thinkers in and practitioners of African-American homiletics. The Academy’s mission is to generate excellence in preaching and worship by exploring the African-American tradition. A link on the page leads to an extensive list of sermon resources to help clergy expand their perspectives on preaching and sermon preparation. For more sermon preparation guidance, see our feature article, “The Challenges of Writing a Sermon - and Tips for Sermon Preparation.” Also see our best resources article on writing sermons and “Preaching in the Visual Age.”
