The G. Campbell Morgan Award for Excellence in Preaching 2014

"The supreme work of the Christian ministry is the work of preaching... the declaration of the grace of God to meet human need." --- Rev. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan

The Rev. Dr. G. Campbell Morgan (DD 1902) was voted one of the ten greatest preachers of the twentieth century by the Christian Century. The legacy of Dr. Morgan’s preaching is its emphasis on the great themes of Christian theology – creation, providence, and redemption – directed toward the great social and spiritual crises of the day with prophetic pastoral precision. He was a genius of expository preaching, unfolding the biblical text with rigor, compassion, imagination, and art.
 
The G. Campbell Morgan Award in preaching is awarded to a current Chicago Theological Seminary Master of Divinity student who excels at this work of preaching. Anyone interested in this award should submit a sermon, based upon Isaiah 56.1-8, as a manuscript in a length of 6-10 pages (double-spaced, 12 point font) to the President of Chicago Theological Seminary.  Submissions will be judged on excellence of biblical, theological, and social reflection by a team headed by President Hunt.  The deadline for submission is February 21. Materials should be forwarded to Kim Johnson, Room 126. This email address is being protected from spambots.
