Preaching is a way of life that can be beautiful and good; however,
It can also be anxious, self-focused, and destructive. Preachers
and teachers of preaching need a holistic view of preaching that
not only paints the way to good preaching, but also to good living.
They need a comprehensive practical theology of preaching that
combines the 'why' and the 'what' with the 'how' and 'whom' of
preaching. Practicing the Preaching Life unites Christian
practices, contextual virtues, and the best of homiletical pedagogy
to pave the way to a beautiful preaching life. Preaching is best
learned as a formative Christian practice embedded within a web of
other Christian practices that form a way of life from which great
sermons emerge. Therefore, preaching requires not only a way of
speaking well, but also a way of living well. This embedded nature
of preaching requires the enrollment of Christian practices in the
formation of the preacher and the pursuit of contextual virtues for
preaching that avoid cultural relativism on the one hand and
cultural imperialism on the other. These requirements lead to a new
vision for the preaching classroom, the rhythms of the preaching
life, and the definition of what it means to be a good preacher.
