The research is to discuss the relationship between "the Holy Spirit" and "the preacher" of contemporary Homiletics, especially with a focus on the important foundation of Homiletics’ theory and practice—“Theology of Preaching”. The subject of the Holy Spirit and the preacher at Contemporary American Homiletics’ books is decentralized. The tradition of the African Americans highlights the work of the Holy Spirit and preaching, and important preachers of the reformed tradition are not mentioned much. If we want to reflect on the subject of the Holy Spirit, the preacher, and also the thesis of the Charismatic phenomenon, in the condition of lacking the preachers of the Reformed Tradition, we can only rely on the theology of “the spirit of life” from the Pneumatology of Moltmann. It could be an approach to learning more about the theology of preaching of the Reformed Tradition.
This research consists of three parts: first, the characteristics of the theology of “the Holy Spirit” of Moltmann. He argues that it’s not just a choice between “revelation” and “experience”, but God’s “immanence” in human experience and the transcendence of human beings in God. The Holy Spirit is present in human beings so that humans are self-transcendent, which allows them to know and experience God. This is called “experience of the Spirit,” which is further developed into the five themes of theology. Second, I propose the theology of preaching by Forbes and Crabtree. Forbes bears the African American Tradition of Pentecostal and insists on the work of the Holy Spirit and the righteousness of society. Crabtree bears the tradition of Assembles of God and tries to revise the view that the tradition of Pentecostal is more Charismatic phenomenon than the Word. Both Forbes and Crabtree have five themes to compare with the themes of Moltmann.
Third, the reformed tradition from Moltmann’s theology is used to examine the theology of preaching from two different theologies of preaching of Pentecostal. In Conclusion, we need to reconstruct the foundation of Scripture about the Holy Spirit and the preacher. Most importantly, the proposition from Moltmann’s theology of “the spirit of life” provides exactly the explanations of the theology of preaching. Furthermore, the work of a preacher must be lead by the Holy Spirit, and the preacher must invite the congregation to experience the work of the Holy Spirit. However, both the contemporary seminary and church need to reflect on the instructions of the theology about the Holy Spirit and the preacher, which may help them to revise some views and positions of the traditional limitations.
