James Kay offers a detailed historical and theological analysis of the theologies of preaching that have dominated Protestant thought. Spanning several theological movements-from the Reformation to Post-Liberalism-Preaching and Theology explores different theological points of view about preaching and covers theologies from Martin Luther to Martin Luther King Jr. and Hans Frei. Kay contends that thinking critically and theologically is necessary for preaching to proceed with honesty, integrity, and faithfulness to the Christian message. Yet for many people, including many preachers, pastors, and professors, theology is itself a negative word. Kay weaves together preaching and theology as he reasons that a "frame of reference" is needed for a proper understanding of preaching as a Christian practice as well as for the vitality of academic or systematic theology.
