On becoming an interesting preacher

Kevin Jamison & John Starke


Often times, young preachers come out of seminary and into their pulpits knowing how to preach the Bible, but do not know how to preach to their people. How do we engage their hearts and desires? How does our preaching participate in their suffering? We come with expectations (from our own convictions and from others) on what our preaching should accomplish, but if we try to fit everything in, our sermons would be well over an hour each week. How do we preach to complexity with simplicity?
