A Vision for Preaching

December 1, 2008

Feeling ‘preached out’ this Monday? Be inspired by probably the best lecture (if you can call it that!) on preaching I’ve ever heard: here by John Piper.


I thank God for this man! What a gift to the church! And what a call to preachers!

“Why Expositional Preaching is Particularly Glorifying to God “- listen, download, manuscript.



  1. Stunning stuff. Makes you want to preach and makes you realise how vast a thing that really is to do.

  2. Colin,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just listened to Piper’s entire ‘lecture’ on preaching while surfing the web. On more than one occasion, I stopped clicking my mouse to soak in his passionate comments. If there is one thing I admire and respect about Piper is his conviction about what preaching REALLY is.

    About a year ago I heard him speak in person at a church 20 minutes away from where I live. Piper spoke out of Psalm 42 and my wife and I STILL remember the message due to the fact of his conviction that he truly believed what he was preaching.

    I have borrowed a quote from this lecture on preaching by Piper and labeled it: “What is Biblical Preaching?(as defined by Piper). A very self-examining quote.

    Thanks again for providing the link to this tremendous encouragement on preaching!
