The Limitations of Preaching

"Preaching at its best helps us worship, inspires, informs and motivates us for discipleship. Unfortunately, too many settle for the performace of preaching without engaging the content of preaching. People rate preaching as they would a movie. Even when they appreciate what is said at the time, they quickly forget or ignore what has been preached, with little personal response."

  2. I spent a few days in London at a preaching conference, and there, to my surprise, was Ron, who was my preaching professor at Western (before the women insisted he be fired!). He's a good guy.
