Hello all, I am doing a project for a communications class on preaching across cultures. My basic idea is that in order to communicate effectively and efficiently to people of any culture (or to a diverse audience) is to decontextualize the sermon, stick to the text, and stick to the doctrine. By decontextualization I mean to remove it from the context of either the speaker's or the hearers' cultural context. A lot is said today about contextualizing a sermon--I am arguing for the opposite. I am having a bit of a difficult time finding material that addresses this subject directly, though. Does anyone have any recommendations? Any help is appreciated.
