“Interfaith Dialogue in the Pulpit—Proclaiming an Emerging Gospel: A 21st Century Imperative,” By Denise Yarbrough

In this article the author reviews the context of contemporary American Christian experience, which is a thoroughly multi-religious, pluralistic context.  The article argues for an approach to Christian preaching which would at all times interpret Christian texts in a way that is radically hospitable to and respectful of other religious traditions, avoiding supercessionism, triumphalism or any sense of superiority.  This pluralist preaching model would seek to proclaim an emerging gospel that is formed and proclaimed in conversation with the wisdom and insights of many world religious traditions.  Such preaching is presented as a spiritual imperative for 21st century Christian formation.
