If You Cannot Preach Like Paul [Copertina flessibile]

Nancy Lammers Gross

Disponibile presso questi venditori.

Descrizione del libro

febbraio 2002
This needed book seeks to reclaim the apostle Paul for today's church. Convinced that many pastors do not preach from Paul because he is too difficult, argumentative, or controversial, Nancy Lammers Gross proposes a new way to preach from Paul that is both relevant and biblically grounded. According to Gross, pastors have erred by merely saying what Paul said. Her answer is simple: Do what Paul did; don't just say what Paul said. Paul's writing functioned in his ministry to form persons for a life of participation in Christ. Modern preaching too, Gross says, needs to do what Paul was doing bringing thenew reality of Christ's lordship into engagement with the context in which his hearers lived. Proposing paradigm shifts that will fundamentally change the way preachers approach the Pauline texts, this volume will be highly valued by anyone involved in the work of Christian proclamation.

This book, while offering constructive advice on preaching sermons from the Pauline Epistles, is strongest in chapters 3 and 4 which deal with the Hermeneutical Journey. Nancy Lammers Gross' methodology for sermon development is easily adopted to other texts besides epistles. Though it may be suited well to awakening what could be considered dry reading in Pauline letters, it can also enliven texts that have been preached time and again through the revised common lectionary or a lectionary of our own making as preachers. Swinging between discernment and questions to textual and commentary research allows the preacher to pair it with other methodologies which may be more determinative of the final form of the sermon. Gross' method allows the text to become 'strange' again so that even the most experienced preacher can find something new within a text though they have preached it for decades. Her method paired with Proctor, Lowry, Long or Wilson takes into account concerns raised by Tisdale and also allows the Spirit to speak such as Forbes has advocated. Her rationale and explanation of what I would call the Hermeneutical Swing method provide a scholarly approach to the mystery of unfolding revelation in preaching.

The author is sympathetic and understanding toward those who dislike the apostle Paul and see no need to preach his letters. She hears the voices of those who contend that Paul's letters simply need to be read rather than preached. She also affirms that there are passages in Paul that may offend modern sensibilities.

Yet she feels that even Paul's letters are God's word to us, and that they are witnesses to Jesus Christ (sounds like Karl Barth). She points out that many preachers have either ignored Paul, or they have preached topical sermons based on one word he says, or they have used select verses out of Paul to support a main point they are making from another non-Pauline passage.

The author says that this is unacceptable. She lays down a few ground rules. She states that we cannot know the mind of Paul and that exegesis of his letters will only rule out false interpretations rather than reveal to us the correct interpretation (that was weird to me).

She feels that there are multiple possible meanings to Paul's letters (I disagree, i would say that there are multiple applications to the single main point of the passage.

The author (Nancy Lamers Gross) goes on to suggest that homiletics should be the last stage of our interpreting process, and that we should reflect on the passage (but she says that our goal is not to preach the text expositionally but to preach the gospel.

She gives four or five of her own sample sermons. I felt that her reflections on Pauline texts would have been better if she had reflected first on the main point of the book she was preaching from, and if she had reflected on this book's place within the canon of scripture. Once you grasp the overall message of Colossians, for example, you are in a better position to interpret a particular text in Colossians. And once you understand the main subject of the Bible (God's plan to redeem the world through Christ), you are in a better position to understand Colossians within this matrix.

But I was helped by this book and impressed with the author's desire to read commentaries and talk with other pastors as part of her sermon preparation.
