Homiletics

Students in the Homiletics concentration work to become scholar-teachers who are conversant with the body of literature associated with the history, theology, theories, and practices of preaching. They engage in dialogue with other disciplines (e.g., theological, biblical, cultural, rhetorical and performative studies) in order to interpret and construct theories of proclamation for diverse public, cultural, and ecclesial contexts. The GTU’s distinctive ecumenical and interreligious context fosters an understanding of preaching that intentionally engages the complexities and injustices of the world.
