VOS, Cas J.A.. A literary-aesthetic approach of homiletic in a changing culture. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.2, pp.01-12. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article deals with homiletics from a literary-aesthetic approach in a changing culture. Within this approach several concepts are defined. Hermeneutics as well as intertextuality are connected to the literary aspect. A cluster of notions form part of the aesthetic concept. In this regard different forms of art are explored. Visual arts, poetry, theatre and film are discussed. The unique contribution of this approach is specifically the development of a homiletic model from a literary-aesthetic perspective in a changing culture. With regard to the latter, the concept of inculturation is utilised. In the process of homiletical inculturation, the critical reciprocal interaction between the sermon and the surrounding cultures is taken into account.
