INAUGURAL CONFERENCE 

preaching title

with MARVIN MCMICKLE

President, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School

In order to be effective, says McMickle, a sermon needs to address the hearers at three distinct levels: the head or the intellect, the heart or passion and conviction, and the hand or an expected and desired response. The sermonic claim is the way in which the sermon engages the listener at all three levels. Hear how going beyond the initial steps of theological analysis, contextual explorations, and biblical exegesis can help the preacher discover the core of the message to be preached, the sermonic "claim."
