dc.description The article is based on a part of Hyun Woong Park (2015) PhD thesis "A homiletical strategy for evangelical preaching in South Korea : beyond the New Homiletic" that he did under supervision of Cas Wepener. (http://hdl.handle.net/2263/50756) en_ZA
dc.description.abstract The purpose of this article is to present empirical research to reveal the reality of the New Homiletic in South Korea. This research was conducted by means of semistructured interviews with seven pastors and eight laypeople of the evangelical faith, residing in Seoul and its metropolitan areas, within the age limits of 20–59 years. The aim was to uncover the experience of the sermons by both the preachers and the hearers of the sermons. The researcher chose Pieterse’s methodology of analysing the data, which is an inductive analysis called open coding. Six main categories from the pastor’s group and five categories from the laypeople emerged from the data. The categories were rearranged into four themes, which is a valuable finding for current-day Korean preaching in order to enhance the homiletical praxis. INTRDISCIPLINARY AND/ OR INTERDISCIPLINARY IMPLICATIONS : This article presents empirical research on the reality of the New Homiletic in South Korea. The results indicate similarity between South Korea and the USA. The conclusion is that traditional discourse should give way to the New Homiletic. This research can become the basis for finding new strategies for evangelical preaching. en_ZA
