Lucy BregmanProfessor Lucy Bregman of the Temple University Religion Department is the author of Preaching Death: The Transformation of Christian Funeral Sermons (Baylor University Press, 2011). She uses collections of funeral sermons and manuals for practicing clergy as a lens through which to illuminate changing notions of death in American society. On Thursday, July 5, 2012 she stopped by my office to talk about her book. At the end of this fascinating interview, she strongly recommends that an interested scholar write a similar book on changes in notions of love and marriage using collections of marriage and wedding sermons and related clergy manuals. Perhaps a doctoral student looking for a good topic will do so.
