Course Memo

We will define rhetoric and how the art form informs homiletics and strategies in sacred, secular, and public square settings. For this course, we will limit our focus to sermons delivered by Gardner C. Taylor in various settings. We will read and view some of his sermons, respond, and react to his pulpit work and consider the rhetorical context(s). Group discussion will enhance our understanding of topic and written papers will be utilized to evaluate our academic proficiency. Class will be hybrid, Monday nights from 5:10 to 8:00 pm. Auditors welcome. [Faculty Consent required]
