Preaching is challenging business. Everyone can use some encouragement and fresh ideas.

This module examines the role of the biblical text in sermon preparation and delivery, encouraging preachers to reflect on their use of the text in all aspects of their homiletical task. The Rev. Dr. Dean Nadasdy teaches textual preaching with this operating principle: Textual preaching engages a biblical text to the extent that the text itself drives the preparation, structure, content and texture of the sermon.
