Discovering a Sermon: Personal Pastoral Preaching

Leave a comment

Dykstra, R. C. (2001). Discovering a Sermon: Personal Pastoral Preaching. St. Louis, MO: Chalice Press.

While this is not a book on biblical interpretation per se, Dykstra outlines in his first chapter (“Playing with the Text”) an approach to dealing with biblical texts and preparing sermons which is based in the Object Relations theories of D.W. Winnicott. He highlights Winnicott’s theories of transitional objects and the healing potential of “shared space” and applies them to the process of encountering the biblical text preparatory to preaching.
