The Two Loves That Give Rise To Sound Preaching (via Tim Keller)

Leave a comment

“In the end, preaching has two basic objects in view: the Word and the human listener. It is not enough to just harvest the wheat; it must be prepared in some edible form or it can’t nourish and delight. Sound preaching arises out or two loves – love of the Word of God and love of people – and from them both a desire to show people God’s glorious grace. And so, while only God can open hearts, the communicator must give great time and thought both to presenting the truth accurately and to bringing it to the hearts and lives of the hearers.”
Tim Keller, Preaching, Viking, 2015, pg 14.
