 The Incarnation in Selected Christmas Sermons

Show Summary Details


Marguerite Shuster explores the handling of the incarnation in Christmas sermons from seven twentieth‐century preachers: four Roman Catholic and three Protestant. Her analysis is structured by the issues O’Collins's chapter identified as critical for contemporary discussion. Perhaps surprisingly, almost all his key questions are treated by these preachers in their sermons. Furthermore, the doctrinal material is most often handled in a moving and homiletically satisfying manner. Thus, these examples may prove encouraging for preachers concerned with the viability of doctrinal preaching.
