Homiletics is a subdiscipline of Practical Theology that focuses on the theory and practice of preaching. Current thinking on homiletics presupposes that the sermon is an event-in-time. The question of the effect of this view in the language of the sermon plays an important role in the present debate. In this article the Dutch theologian K.H. Miskotte (1894-1976) throws new light on this issue. Although his hermeneutical observations stem from a much different time, they are of supprisingly contemporary interest on this point. The internal dynamics of language and its effects on its hearers are central.
