Archives For Preaching

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’ve written in the past as to why that’s usually the case. I’m a pastor first, blogging is way down on my priority list. Frankly, most of my posts are simply the overflow of my local church ministry. However, one of the reasons for the current gap in blogging is due to putting the finishing touches on my upcoming book, Preaching That Moves People.

This is my second book, something I had planned to write a year or two earlier but, as one might surmise, life and ministry (and a little bit of procrastination) led me to completing this project now. But the finish line is in sight. The book has been written, edited, and is currently being proofed. I’ve also had the pleasure of receiving several endorsements from ministry friends far and wide (with more coming). I’ve even had some leaders from different church-planting networks comment on how they will be using my book for training their residents when it comes to preaching. Needless to say, I’m excited to help with this latest offering. There’s just a few things left to do before this ship sets sail. Preaching That Moves People has a release date set for the first week of January 2018. Now you know. 😉

I had the opportunity to sit down with the great gang at the D6 Family and talk about How to be a ‘Better’ Preacher. In this podcast, you’ll find content that will be in my upcoming book on preaching. Grace!

 

Dr. Haddon Robinson (1931-2017)

Haddon Robinson passed away this morning. He was the Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and author of one of the most influential books on preaching, Biblical Preaching. His article on “The Heresy of Application” is one which still marks my preaching today. I salute you, Dr. Robinson! I’m grateful for God’s work in you for making those who preach his word better in the calling they have. I know that’s been true for me.
