All over the world, millions of people attend services every week, and
most of them will hear sermons. What happens between the sermon and the
listener? Does the sermon become meaningful to listeners? The present
study in the fields of practical theology, homiletics, and psychology of
religion combines quantitative and qualitative methods to offer an
empirically-based approach to the study of preaching. Highlighting the
psychological factors influencing how a sermon is heard, this study draws
theoretical insight from the works of D.W. Winnicott, A.-M. Rizzuto and D.
Bonhoeffer in its examination of the relationship between the meaning of
the sermon and the hearer’s God image, personality, and affective state.

Hanneke Schaap-Jonker, PhD, is a psychologist and a theologian.
