Beschreibung

Transgressing traditions to make a rhetorical space for women preachers In this feminist investigation into the art of preaching--one of the oldest and least studied rhetorical traditions--Roxanne Mountford explores the relationship between bodies, space, race, and gender in rhetorical performance and American Protestant culture. The Gendered Pulpit: Preaching in American Protestant Spaces examines the strategies of three contemporary women preachers who have transgressed traditions, rearranged rhetorical space, and conquered gender bias to establish greater intimacy with their congregations. Mountford's examinations of the rhetoric inherent in preaching manuals from 1850 to the present provide insight into how "manliness" has remained a central concept in American preaching since the mid-nineteenth century. The manuals illustrate that the character, style, method of delivery, and theological purpose of preachers focused on white men and their cultural standing, leaving contemporary women preachers searching for ways to accommodate themselves to the physicality of preaching. Case studies of three women preachers who have succeeded or failed in rearranging rhetorical space provide the foundation for the volume. Mountford explores the geographies of St. John's Lutheran Church and the preaching of Rev. Patricia O'Connor who reformed rhetorical space through the delivery of her sermons. At Eastside United Church of Christ, Mountford shows, Rev. Barbara Hill employed narrative style and prophetic utterance in the tradition of black preaching to address gender bias and institute change in her congregation. The final case study details the experiences of Pastor Janet Moore and her struggles atVictory Hills United Methodist Church, where the fractured congregation could not be united even with Pastor Moore's focus on theological purpose and invention strategies.

Pressestimmen

"Mountford brings her expertise in the history of rhetoric to this examination of gender and preaching. The result is a splendid and highly literate book that ranges from theory to ethnography - a book that is fun to read and very Informative." - Choice "The pulpit has traditionally been perceived as a masculine rhetorical space. In this insightful study, Roxanne Mountford examines Protestant women's struggles to claim the pulpit as their own. Women ministers will be utterly fascinated by this book." - Catherine Brekus, University of Chicago "The Gendered Pulpit offers an elegant and entertaining exploration of territory that, once forbidden to women, is now being claimed and reshaped by them in exciting ways." - Nancy Mairs, author of A Troubled Guest: Life and Death Stories "For all those committed to refiguring rhetorical history, theory, and pedagogy in more open and inclusive ways, this is a must-read." - Andrea A. Lunsford, Stanford University"
