Theologies of the Gospel

One crucial intersection for any Homiletical Theology concerns a theology of the gospel. This theological topic is of interest not just to homileticians, but also theologians, Biblical scholars, and missiologists. The sampling of books and articles assembled in the bibliography below attend to matters such as defining the gospel, reflecting on the gospel in context, the relationship of gospel and culture, and the history of gospel reflection. For preachers, the gospel is important as a key lens for preaching—it helps preachers be good theologians as they work with different texts and in various kinds of situations. A theology of the gospel is essential for any preacher who is a theologian of the Word today. Theologies of the gospel bear witness to the pluralistic work being done on this topic across contexts.
