אור הדרשנים: The Or Ha-darshanim of Jacob Zahalon : a Seventeenth-century Italian Preachers' Manual
Jewish Theological Seminary of America, 1987 - Religion - 248 pages
Banned by the Inquisition in 1693, fourteen months after the author's death, this manual by one of the Italian Jewish community's most effective preachers has remained unpublished since then. But this guide to composing, organizing, and delivering sermons is remarkably valuable. The vital questions of the sermon's length, problem's of organization, opening and conclusion, the preacher's use of examples, his manner of speech and gesture--all these are taken up in Rabbi Zohalon's work.
