Here are some posts on preaching and exegesis that I noticed recently. (To receive Preaching Post Roundup as a weekly email, please subscribe.)
- Pastors Less Likely to Preach on Race Now from Aaron Earls (Facts & Trends) – the results of a Lifeway Research study
- 6 Questions about Illustrations, Part 1 and Part 2 from Peter Mead (Biblical Preaching) – What is the illustration’s purpose? Does it rely on knowledge or experience? Has it been experienced by the congregation? Is it of the laziest and weakest kind? Is it self-destructive? Is an illustration really needed?
- Preaching Hope in Darkness – Karen Mason and Scott Gibson – from Mike Neglia, Karen Mason and Scott Gibson (Expositors Collective) – “approaches that preachers and churches can implement to make our communities centers of hope and life in the face of the darkness of suicide.”
- On Biblical Quotations and Allusions (with Michael Lawrence), Preachers Talk, Ep. 16 from David Helm, Jeremy Meeks and Michael Lawrence (9 Marks) – the value of seeing typological connections throughout Scripture by means of biblical quotations and allusions
- Reading the Psalms Theologically: Part One from Matthew Y. Emerson (Credo Magazine) – “prosopological exegesis” helps us see that the book of Psalms centers on the Son and is the church’s prayer book
