Doug Gay provided one of the most unforgettable moments of the 2017 Festival of Preaching with his heart-stopping sermon on Mary of Bethany. A lecturer in practical theology, liturgy and homiletics at the University of Glasgow, and a songwriter, we’re delighted he is joining us again. Since last time, his excellent God Be In My Mouth: 40 Ways to Grow as a Preacher has been published.
Anna Carter Florence is the Peter Marshall Professor of Preaching at Columbia Theological Seminary, Georgia, and one of the most popular speakers at the annual US Festival of Homiletics. A minister in the Presbyterian Church and a former youth pastor, she is the author of Rehearsing Scripture: Discovering God’s Word in Community (Canterbury Press, 2018), based on her Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School. Nadia Bolz-Weber writes, ‘I’m so grateful for her work, her love of the Bible, and her insistence that in it we find truth.’
