Abstract:
This thesis argues that a particular perspective on Christian preaching, informed by the Christian concept of viceregency and summarily titled "the viceregal homiletic", is a new and distinct model for homiletical reflection. The viceregal homiletic's distinctiveness lies in its critical choice and development of G.K. Beale's understanding of Christian viceregency into an image for which to scrutinize the Christian preacher. Chapter 1 of this thesis argues that the viceregal homiletic is distinct from existing homiletical reflection because it proceeds in a theological mode of reflection. Chapter 2 of this thesis argues that the viceregal homiletic is distinct from existing homiletical reflection in the theological mode because it proceeds in a biblical-theological mode of reflection. Chapter 3 introduces and critiques the biblical-theological method of G.K. Beale, and proposes its suitability to inform the viceregal homiletic's theological vision of Christian preaching. Chapter 4 introduces and critiques G.K. Beale's understanding of Christian viceregency in order to clarify the viceregal homiletic's claim that the preacher is a Christian viceregent. Chapter 5 differentiates the viceregal homiletic from homiletics of Jason Meyer, Thomas Long, and John Stott.
