Abstract:Preaching tells the story of Jesus in other words so that the hearers have a religious framework within which to locate their personal identities and to judge and interpret their own stories. This gives the preacher great power over people's lives. The ethics of preaching underscores the duty to be competent in the ways we interpret God's word and people's lives, and it demands that we give authentic witness to what we say, lest our preaching lack credibility. (Gula 1996: 69).
