i’m starting the initial research for my d.min project. there has not yet been a lot of research in collaborative sermon preparation so i don’t have a ton of resources to dig into. i have found this two papers that are very interesting and should be helpful.
here they are:
- a thesis paper evaluating collaborative preparation methods
- collaborative preaching from the margins – this is by dr. john mcclure, one of the few professors i can find who have written on the subject. dr. mcclure uses a group that specifically pulls in people “from the margins of society” for sermon prep. its very interesting.
i’ve also run into several reviews of the book by michael pasquarello III’s “CHRISTtian preaching: a trinitarian theology of proclamation.” while the works is not specifically on collaborative preaching it looks like it might offer some interesting theological insight. i may have to get it. here’s one such review.
