When is preaching good?

The question concerned in this article is of great importance for every preacher. Not only do preachers often find their professional identity in the “success” of their preaching, but the question is critical for the congregation as such. As a vital part of the liturgy, preaching construes the worship life of a faith community. In a Festschrift for Manfred Josuttis (2011) Cornelius-Bundschuh also wrestled with this question. In this article I will think with Bundschuh and a few other theologians about what one may call the question of the quality of preaching as proclamation of the gospel. Within my frame of reference this article will focus on a) the impact of personality within this ministry of preaching, b) die interwovenness of the didache and the kerugma, c) the place of preaching within the whole and total ministry of and within the congregation, and d) preaching as creative ministry of the text of the Bible in context.
