[S2E1] What is Homiletics?
with Dr. David R. Dewberry & Dr. Tim "As Seen on TV" McGee
With a good amount of wordplay, we focus on homiletics as the application of the principles of rhetoric to the specific act of preaching, and several of the Fathers of the Christian Church happened to have been very knowledgeable in the ways of that old, pagan, Greco-Roman rhetoric. Plus, homiletics plays a huge role in the expansion of rhetoric from a discipline focused primarily upon oral communication to one that was very involved in both the analysis and production of written texts.

The untranslated Latin/Greek phrase is, "Da mihi castitatem et continentiam, sed noli modo.”
Rhetoric-O-Rama is a fun and educational introduction to rhetoric by two college professors, Dr. David R. Dewberry and Dr. Tim "As Seen on TV" McGee. Each episode features a discussion on some aspect of rhetoric and then offers some tasty extra bonus content: a fallacy, a historical tidbit, or a stylistic device to help improve your own rhetoric.
David R. Dewberry and Tim McGee are professors of communication at Rider University. After each show, they get a cheeseburger and celebrate the time Tim was on Wheel of Fortune in the early 80s.
