In the first installment of the 1Marks interview series, I spoke with Dr. Robert Bell about Old Testament stuff. In the second, I spoke with one of my pastors, Dr. Robert Vincent, about church and personal evangelism.
Today we’ve reached the third installment. The topic is preaching, and the interviewee is Kerry McGonigal, an elder at my church and a friend who has taught homiletics at BJU since 2003. (Right click here to download the file.) Kerry is a great communicator, even though in this recorded interview you can’t see his fingers. He’s got energy, he’s got a vision for what preaching can and should do in the lives of God’s people, and he’s formed wise strategies for teaching preaching to others. He also preached what was at the time the best chapel sermon I’d ever heard at Bob Jones (since then he has been superseded but now holds second place).
I’m very excited about his ministry teaching preaching, because I have seen in my own life the power that a faithful and careful ministry of the Word has.
Kerry and I mention a number of books in this interview, and we agree with every single word written in these books and every single thing that any of their authors have ever done or said. (Okay, maybe not quite.) Click the book to buy it at my favorite online bookstores:
