While the effects of historical criticism on theology in the modern period have been well documented, their implications for modern preaching have been largely ignored. Dawn DeVries examines the content of and reasoning behind the preaching on the synoptic gospels of John Calvin and Friedrich Schleiermacher in order to ascertain their responses to the historical Jesus. By doing so, DeVries demonstrates that the shifting of emphasis in modern preaching from the miraculous aspects of the gospel narratives to the "internal" miracles of faith has historical, intellectual, and spiritual grounding in the work of these classical theologians.ContentsAbbreviations Preface 1 The Historian and the Preacher 2 Calvin on the Word as Sacrament 3 Calvin's Sermons on the Synoptic Gospels 4 Schleiermacher on the Word Made Flesh 5 Schleiermacher's Sermons on the Synoptic Gospels 6 The Living Word and the Work of Christ Bibliography Index
