“The gospel is news that passes from the lips of one who has heard to the ears of one who has not yet heard, then (God willing) it burrows in the soul, energizing the hands in daring response to a word received. Preaching is instigated by an astounding claim: Good news; God has spoken to us. The Christian life is what you get when ordinary folk respond: I have heard.”
I had a great conversation about the new book, Listeners Dare: Hearing God in the Sermon, with Jason Micheli about a month ago. I hope you’ll listen and enjoy!
