From the apostle Pail, Origen, and Chrysostom through Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, and Wesley to Catherine Mumford Booth, Harry Emerson Fosdick, and Martin Luther King, Jr., this volume traces the history of preaching by focusing in particular moments in the sermons of twenty key Christian preachers.
By tracing the development of homiletics from the early church through the Middle Ages and the reformation to modern times, "A Concise History of Preaching" analyses how preachers through history have structured their sermons and shows how preaching embodies the theological ideas of an era.
By showing how modern preacher can use the form, rhetoric, theology, and style of Augustine, Bushnell, or others, this concise overview will be useful to seminarians in courses on preaching, and to pastors who are looking for ways to energize their preaching.

Early church: the authority of the word as sound.

East: a word gives varieties of meaning.
