Since the Reformation, the focal point of worship for many Christian churches has been the table of the Word--the proclamation of Scriptures and the preaching event. Congregations have been fed, often well and abundantly, at the "single feast" table of the Word. But what is the role of preaching in the "double feast" churches--churches whose normative liturgical worship features rites at the two tables of the Word and of the Eucharist? This is a multi-voiced ecumenical preaching anthology full of insights from those who preside, preach, and celebrate the double feast. In terms of time, as well as content and structure, proclamation and preaching at the double feast will be very different from preaching at worship that is exclusively Word-centered. Father Michael Monshau adds timely and critical new perspective to the issue by bringing together five significant voices from "double feast" churches whose presentations, in effect, become varied, short textbooks on how to preach.

Editorial Reviews

"Despite the massive irruption of books on preaching in the last twenty years, very few focus on how the sermon is shaped by the presence of the loaf and the cup, nor on how the sermon shapes our experience of the loaf and the cup. This excellent book, containing contributions from four traditions whose worship regularly includes both Word and table, helps us understand the full-bodied service of worship as 'double feast' in which each part helps maximize our experience of the other. The gifted authors help us think about how the table shapes the person of the preacher, how each part of the liturgy has its own integrity even as the service is an organic whole, and even how to teach students to preach in services of the double feast." -- Ronald J. Allen, Nettie Sweeney and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Preaching and New Testament, Christ
