Preaching in a Postmodern Culture
Christ is the same "yesterday, today, and tomorrow."
The biblical Word likewise remains the fixed foundation on which to preach Christ and his gospel. But although the content of Scripture changes not, the context in which that Word is preached shifts dramatically era to era. In today's postmodern context, the acoustics are different-familiar doctrines reverberate differently in the postmodern ear. So how can sermons speak into this cultural moment? How can pastors speak into this context without compromising the Bible's content? This panel reflected on these questions so as to provide practical suggestions aimed at encouraging preachers in their vital task.
Presented at the 2006 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
