From the basic presupposition that preaching is God's act with people through his Holy Spirit, the authors investigate several applicable aspects from the field of ancient rhetoric and modern pragmatics. Attention is paid, inter alia, to the rhetorical situation, ancient rhetorical genres, the topoi of an argument and strategies for persuasion. These aspects are directly applied to the process of constructing and delivering a sermon. In same vein way the authors utilize aspects indicated by modern pragmatics aspects such as the speaker, the hearer, time and space, and the shared knowledge between preacher and hearer. In conclusion, the urgent need for interaction between preacher and hearers in the preparation and delivering of a sermon is stated.
