Preachers and Preachingby R.C. Sproul
In this series, Dr. Sproul examines Martin Luther’s view of preachers and preaching, and demonstrates that Luther’s descriptions of a pastor and guidelines for preaching offer valuable instruction for the church today. As he discusses the qualifications of a pastor, including his spiritual gifts, knowledge, and doctrine, Dr. Sproul charges pastors as faithful servants of the Word of God, to focus on nurturing their congregations—not entertaining them. He reminds ministers of their high calling and discusses common snares that have damaged the effectiveness of preachers throughout the ages.
