About the Author

Tracy Hartman is the Daniel O. Aleshire Professor of Homiletics and Practical Theology at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond in Richmond, VA.


Kemp Hartman empowers us to listen anew to God's voice speaking through the voices of others. Her scholarly reflections and sample sermons related to six biblical women bridge the gap between theory and practice, ourselves and "others," biblical and current contexts, prophetic and pastoral possibilities in preaching. -- Dawn Ottoni-Wilhelm, Bethany Theological Seminary
Tracy Hartman has written a clear, vivid and theologically sophisticated work that integrates biblical exegesis and contextual understandings of preaching. Her keen intellectual work is complemented by engaging sermons that give us new insight into the scriptures, the experience of women, and the mystery of God. This is an excellent piece of homiletical scholarship, equally useful to the seminary classroom and the ministry of busy preachers. -- Thomas H. Troeger, Lantz Professor of Christian Communication, Yale Divinity School
In an engaging and pioneering book, Tracy Hartman leads us to encounter six key stories of women in the Bible as Others. a brilliant move, Professor Hartman offers two sermons on each passage-one from a pastoral point of view for those who need the encouragement of the story, and one from a prophetic point of view for those who need to become agents of social transformation. I know of no better practical introduction to Otherness and to the ways in which it can bring preaching alive. -- Ronald J. Allen, Christian Theological Seminary
