Teaching Preaching: Isaac Rufus Clark and Black Sacred Rehetoric by Katie Geneva Cannon

$24.60

Isaac Rufus Clark, Sr., was “one of the most serious and demanding preaching professors of the twentieth century. “ He taught at the Interdenominational Theological Center in Atlanta, Georgia, for twenty-seven years, and traces of his remarkable influence on contemporary preaching are identifiable in black pulpits throughout the U.S., the Caribbean, and Africa.
       In Teaching Preaching Katie Cannon offers “Clark’s master guide . . . on nearly every aspect of preaching in the black church community.” For the hundreds of students who studied with Clark, this book will be a refresher course. For those trained in other institutions it will serve as “a distinct clearly accessible homiletical practicum.”
       “In undertaking this task, I have conceived of my responsibility as that of making more readily available the gold mine of Clark’s instructions regarding the nature of rhetorical strategies and their underlying ethics in establishing preaching as a sending forth in the work of justice . . . . Clark’s is not the only methodology that emerged in my research on Christian ethics in the academic teaching of homiletics, but it is one of the strongest of those time-tested, black touchstones for determining the quality of genuineness in the African American pulpit.” – Katie Geneva Cannon. 184 pages
