Preaching and the Affections

Date recorded: 28 May 2014 | Speaker: Peter Mead | Event: ELF Workshop
Preaching and the Affections


Application preaching is in demand.  But what does application of the Bible involve?  Does applicational preaching mean giving listeners lists of instructions to follow?  How about the educational nature of biblical revelation?  And what are we to make of the biblical emphasis on the human heart?  This session will explore the contrast between our assumed internal mode of functioning and the biblical teaching on our spiritual anthropology.  We will consider the role of emotions in preaching, looking at both healthy and unhealthy manipulative approaches to applicational preaching and the challenge of engaging the lives of listeners with the Word of God.
