The Haddon W. Robinson Preaching Award is an annual preaching scholarship established in honor of Dr. Haddon W. Robinson, one of the leading evangelical homiliticians of the later 20th and early 21st centuries. Robinson’s teaching career in homiletics spanned decades, instructing students at three different seminaries. Dr. Robinson’s classic textbook, Biblical Preaching, helped shape the place and force of evangelical homiletics. Robinson’s legacy for preaching is captured in this significant award.
Sermons for this year’s award are to be based on the New Testament parables.
SCHOLARSHIP DETAILS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
• This scholarship is open to all Associate Members of EHS.
• Sermons are to be 15-20 minutes in length.
• Sermons are to focus on the theme and/or Bible text announced for the Haddon W. Robinson Preaching Award.
• The target listeners are members of a local evangelical church.
• The sermons are to be videotaped, posted to the student’s YouTube channel, and the YouTube link provided to RobinsonSermons@ehomiletics.com by the stated deadline.
• A task force of EHS members will view the submission, evaluate it on the basis of adherence to basic principles of biblical preaching (as discussed in Robinson’s Biblical Preaching) and the EHS confessional statement, and determine first, second and third prize awardees.
• The Board will notify the students of the decisions at least 90 days prior to the EHS annual conference.
• Recipients will be recognized at the annual EHS conference; the first place recipient may be an option of presenting the message during the EHS (e.g. one of the periods in which academic papers are presented) and a possible link to the message included on the EHS website.
