At his Letter of Marque blog, Christian apologist and radio host, Chris Rosebrough, offers an important answer to an equally important question: What is preaching? He writes:
What is preaching? This is a question you’ve probably never asked. The reason that you’ve probably never asked this question is because, well, the answer seems self evident. We’ve all been to church and heard the preacher man preach. So, what kind of question is the question “what is preaching”? Answer: a good one. It’s a question you really should be asking. But, more importantly it is one that you need to search in scripture to find the answer to. When you do that you are likely to discover that the Biblical answer to this question isn’t exactly what you’ve experienced in your church — and that should bother you, greatly.
