Conference: The Art of Preaching in the 21st Century

The Art of Preaching in the 21st Century

October 10-12, 2011

Candler School of Theology, Cannon Chapel – Emory University

 Preaching today is not—and should not be—the same as it was yesterday. Yes, the gospel message is always counter-cultural to a degree, but great preachers realize that the message is never heard in a vacuum—environment and culture impact the hearing of proclamation. Preaching today must make the connection between the claims of Christian faith and the world in which we live.

Join these eight nationally acclaimed preachers at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta this October 11-12 and learn The Art of Preaching in the 21st Century.
