Richard Ward recently retired from his position as Professor of Homiletics and Worship at Phillips Theological Seminary, where he held the Fred B. Craddock Chair. He continues to serve at Phillips Theological Seminary as Visiting Professor of Preaching and Practical Theology. Richard brings a rich background in performance studies and practices to the study of preaching. He is particularly interested in the arts of storytelling and oral interpretation of scripture as they inform and enrich the ministry of preaching. His sermon from John 6:1-21 is a good example of both his storytelling ability and his homiletical skill. Push the play button!
