I preach. I teach preaching. I’ve written a small book on preaching (out next year). I love listening to preaching. So you’d think I could easily answer the question: “What is preaching?”Yet, when a friend asked me this on Saturday, at the Mid-Michigan Reformed Conference, I found it difficult to immediately come up with a comprehensive one-sentence answer. The best I came up with was: “Preaching is a passionate explanation of the text of Scripture, with a Christ-centered focus, to transform hearts and lives for the glory of God.” I’m sure there are better definitions around. Any suggestions?
