THE THOUGHTFUL PROCLAIMER:
USING AN INDUCTIVE DUAL AUTHORIAL INTENT HERMENEUTIC
TO OFFER PREACHERS IN NIGERIA A WAY
TO PREPARE EXPOSITORY SERMONS
Elizabeth Wright Anderson D.Min.
Preachers who have not received theological training can learn to prepare expository biblical sermons using an inductive dual authorial intent hermeneutic. A method to do so was devised based on inductive Bible study techniques and a dual authorial intent hermeneutic. This method took into account the intents and purposes of the Bibles original authors and the ultimate divine author. The method used was published as Thoughtful Proclaimer: a Bottom-up Guide to Preparing Bible Messages that Transform You From the Inside Out. This method was taught in week-long seminars in the United States and finally tested by training preachers in Nigeria.
