Publisher's Description:

Privilege the Text! spans the conceptual gap between biblical text and life application by providing a rigorous theological hermeneutic for preaching. Kuruvilla describes the theological entity that is the intermediary between ancient text and modern audience, and defines its crucial function in determining valid application. Based on this hermeneutic, he submits a new mode of reading Scripture for preaching: a Christiconic interpretation of the biblical text, a hermeneutically robust way to understand the depiction of the Second Person of the Trinity in Scripture.

In addition, Kuruvilla's work provides a substantive theology of spiritual formation through preaching: what it means to obey God, the Christian's responsibility to undertake "faith-full" obedience to divine demand, and the incentives for such obedience-all integral to understanding the sermonic movement from text to application.

Privilege the Text! promises to be useful not only for preachers, and students and teachers of homiletics, but for all who are interested in the exposition of Scripture that culminates in application for the glory of God.

Dr. Abraham Kuruvilla is professor of pastoral ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. Abe centers his ministry around the art and science of preaching: exploring preaching through research and scholarship, explaining preaching by training the next generation of church leaders, and exemplifying preaching in regular pulpit engagements in the US and elsewhere. He has served as the interim preacher of churches in Texas and Massachusetts, and as president of the Evangelical Homiletics Society. He has also written several preaching commentaries, and he blogs regularly at homiletix.com. In his other life, Dr. Kuruvilla is also a diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology and maintains an active clinical schedule.
