Preaching with Variety

Here’s a few snippets from a helpful book on preaching I read recently. It’s by Jeffrey Arthurs and entitled Preaching With Variety.

“Who does not know that words carry greater conviction when spoken by men of good repute than when spoken by men who live under a cloud.” – Isocrates (p15)

“The defining essence of an expository sermon lies in its content not its form” (p16)

“When form prompts participation, we are more likely to accept ideas associated with the form” (p26)

“The art of teaching is the art of assisted discovery” – Van Doren (p30)

He goes on in the second part of the book to offer many helpful suggestions on how to preach different genres of Scripture. Well worth a read.
