Do Military Chaplains Preach? Exploring Sermons for Soldiers by Protestant Military Chaplains in the Dutch Army

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter Academicpeer-review


    This paper provides an introduction to the study of the sermons of military chaplains based on 10 sermons by Army and Navy chaplains within the context of peacekeeping missions. Three concepts emerge from these data, focusing upon the homiletical activity of military chaplains. They redefine the liturgical conditions for preaching, offer witness to sources of wisdom, and dignify the individual soldier in the presence of Christ.
