This ethics of preaching text identifies vices of irresponsible preaching practices. Preachers who fail to develop deep respect for their listeners or drift into a lack faithfulness to the Gospel can end up becoming: The Pretender (The Problem of In-authenticity) The Egoist (The Problem of Self-absorption) The Manipulator (The Problem of Greediness) The Panderer (The Problem of Trendiness) The Crusader (The Problem of Exploitation) The Demagogue (The Problem of Self-righteousness) Just as the church historically derived its Seven Holy Virtues (chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, & humility) by naming Seven Deadly Sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, & pride), Reid and Hogan call preachers to turn away from pulpit vices and strive to realize the homiletic virtues of becoming: Authentic (The Call to Be Genuine) Altruistic (The Call to Be Selfless) Careful (The Call to Exercise Self-Control) Passionate (The Call to Be Honest to God) Courteous (The Call to Woo a Reasoned Reception) A 'Namer' of God (The Call to Reveal an Ineffable God) The Six Deadly Sins of Preaching explores the difference between the irresponsible practices, unfortunate missteps, and mere unthinking mistakes in preaching. A chapter is devoted to Preaching Missteps (problems that do not rise to the level of being irresponsible) that includes: Short Changing the Process Waving a Red Flag Thou Shall Not Bore the Congregation Through the Looking Glass Darkly The Mumbler TMI--Too Much Information Your Cup Do Runneth Over Where's This Sermon Going, Anyway?
