  Homiletical Theology in Action: The Unfinished Theological Task of Preaching tries to envision the work of homiletics as theological in root and branch. By placing theological questions at the center of the process, the authors, some of the leading lights of the field of homiletics, try to show how their work as preachers and homileticians is a thoroughgoing theological : David Schnasa Jacobsen. In his recent book Preaching: A Biblical Theology, Jason Meyer—who recently succeeded John Piper as pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist church in Minneapolis—argues, “The way to preach an expository sermon is (1) to share what the point of the passage is, (2) to show why that point is the point from the passage, and (3) to shepherd the flock according to where the text leads when applied to the present circumstances of the congregation” . The author here argues that some troubling texts actually represent the unfinished theological task of preaching itself. They require more than revision or repudiation, but instead a kind of ongoing homiletical-theological re-engagement in the gospel. Just as a preacher tries to makes sense of the gospel in light of trauma, grief, or crisis, so. We no longer see the Bible as a collection of random books, but as one book with one story that all testifies about Jesus Christ. The study of this idea is called biblical theology, and it is essential for the health of the church and the task of expository preaching.

Fundamentally we have an impoverished theology of revelation which fails to appreciate what evangelicals from another age held dear – namely that God Himself addresses us in preaching. Consider this classic statement of reformed faith from the Second Helvetic Confession: 'The Preaching of the Word of God is the Word of God. Thomas Long - Preaching As a Theological Task: World Gospel Scripture. 'PREACHING AS A THEOLOGICAL TASK' Description not currently available for this item.. Online family Christian book .   A theology of preaching must take the role of the Spirit into full view, for without an understanding of the work of the Spirit, the task of preaching is robbed of its balance and power. The neglect of the work of the Spirit is one evidence of the decline of biblical trinitarianism in our midst.
