Naming Grace Preaching and the Sacramental Imagination



Naming Grace Preaching and the Sacramental Imagination by Professor Mary Catherine, O. P. Hilkert


Preachers and teachers of preaching from any denomination will find Naming Grace insightful and inspiring, clear and comprehensive, practical and passionate. Joan Delaplane, O.P. More than a simple theology of preaching, this volume reaches into the dynamic depths of Christian life in an original, provocative, and readable way. It is a rich contribution to a much-neglected field. Elizabeth A. Johnson Deeply informed by Catholic and Protestant theology, Catherine Hilkert explores the imaginative depth and the depth of imagination intrinsic to authentic preaching . . . A remarkable harvest of the most telling ecumenical and liberationalist insights bearing upon the theology and the practical art of preaching. Don E. Saliers The single best book on the theology of preaching to appear in quite some time .everyone who preaches will be enriched by an encounter with this book .an intellectually stimulating tour of some recent conversations on the role of the Bible in the life of the church .Although Hilkert's exposition of women's voices in preaching is not the first attempt at helping us understand the unique gifts that women bring to the pulpit, it might very well be the best one to date .If you can only read one book on preaching and theology, read this one. It will challenge you intellectually and theologically, it will inspire you, it will renew your commitment to preaching, and in all likelihood it will make you a better preacher.
