The Greatest Danger in Sermon Preparation

December 18, 2007

“The greatest danger you will face is that you will focus too narrowly or too quickly on certain features of the text and, by neglecting the surrounding details, will misinterpret the whole. I confess that at times I have discovered, only moments before preaching a sermon, an aspect of a text that eluded my attention (and undercut my conclusions) because I had focused too exclusively on the part of the text that interested me.”

(Bryan Chapell, Christ-Centered Preaching, page 107)
