Preaching is one of the more transformable aspects of the churchs
life. Performance teacher Ruthanna Hooke, writing for both clergy
and lay leaders, delivers the good and bad news about Episcopalians
and preaching. She explains why preaching is more difficult than
ever today, and provides essential models and spiritual practices
in order to transform both the creators of preaching and its
listeners as both participate in sermons.
Ruthanna Hooke is assistant professor of homiletics at Virginia Theological Seminary and earned her Ph.D in religious studies from Yale University. She also teaches performance,movement,and voice training for preachers.
