Good news to the poor: effective preaching through the lens of liberation theology
Author
Mark F Bozzuti-Jones
Abstract
Liberation theology offers the preacher a more authentic presence, praxis, and voice. Efective preaching is always an imitation of Jesus and Jesus preached good news to the poor and the oppressed. Women, African Americans and immigrants are the poorest in our society; liberation theology provides an opportunity for a most effective preaching enterprise. This thesis looks specifically at liberation-theology-focused preaching, asking these research questions: What makes for authentic preaching on behalf of those who suffer and experience oppression? How can we use liberation theology to make our preaching more effective, especially in relation to those who are oppressed?
