Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit builds on students' understanding of preaching and subsequent experience and assists them to develop their ministry of preaching the living Word of God. It aims to extend students' knowledge and understanding of contemporary scholarship on preaching, as well as developing their practice of preaching by paying explicit attention to the trio of assembly, text and preacher, through which the living Word of God shapes the faith community and its response to God's grace, both individually and corporately.
