Featured Author: Richard Lischer

Richard Lischer is a professor emeritus at Duke Divinity school, and he recently published with Eerdmans his latest book of sermons, Just Tell the Truth, which explores how Christians can speak and act in truth in the midst of contemporary practical issues. 

A native of St. Louis, Professor Lischer's graduate theological training is in systematic theology. He is an ordained minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and has pastoral experience in both rural and suburban settings. He joined the Duke Divinity School faculty in 1979 to teach homiletics and ministry. 

In his scholarly work, Dr. Lischer has sought to portray proclamation, ministry, and rhetoric as integrated theological activities. He also has explored the interactions of preaching, politics, and contemporary culture, notably in The Preacher King: Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Word that Moved America and in The End of Words: The Language of Reconciliation in a Culture of Violence. His book The Company of Preachers was named Best Book in Ministry/Leadership by Christianity Today in 2003. His theological memoir, Open Secrets: A Memoir of Faith and Discovery, evokes the hidden dynamics of ministry in a small-town parish. A second memoir, Stations of the Heart: Parting with a Son, commemorates his son, Adam, who died in 2005. 

Professor Lischer has taught and lectured widely in the areas of practical theology, ministry, religious autobiography, and preaching. He has held many distinguished lectureships, such as the Lyman Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School. He received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007 from the Academy of Homiletics.
