Talk

The Gospel and Preaching

Description

The Bible is given to a fallen world to reveal God and his gracious plan to rescue the undeserving. In this talk we consider various approaches to preaching, including what we will call the Big Idea and the Big Story approaches to preaching the Word of God. Every text was written in the context of a fallen world and written to people in this fallen world - so every text must in some way be redemptive, shining the light of God's goodness into our darkness. What does it mean for us to preach the good news from every passage in the Bible - to preach redemptively?
