A Tool for Describing the Form and Content of Preaching As Currently Practiced in the Orthodox Church

by Constantopoulos, Constantine Angelo, PhD

Abstract (Summary)
This study seeks to enable the hearing of the Word so as to facilitate salvation. First referencing God and His salvation scripturally, then putting faith into homiletic context, it establishes a mode of inquiry for understanding Orthodox preaching through a performance hermeneutic, an applied form of kinesthetic intelligence, by constructing a descriptive tool developed from scripture inferred from Saint John Chrysostom’s variant contextual usage of the word kerygma. It concludes by proposing a heuristic construct through which a reframed group productivity theory is reformulated into a paradigm that may help the Church meet its homiletic responsibility.
