Preaching with Variety: Poetry and Discourse

Description

The Bible God has given us is overflowing with variety.  It was written by over forty authors, in three languages, on three continents, over a couple of thousand years, and yet is united by the Spirit into a single masterful work that points us to Christ.  In this talk we consider how biblical poetry and biblical discourse work.  How should we approach the Psalms and the Prophets, as well as Jesus' direct teaching and the Epistles?  How can we not only say what the Bible says, but also seek to do what the Bible does?
