Find Your Preaching Voice with Help from Matt Chandler and J.D. Greear

greear-chandler-sermonsWhen I was a seminary student, one of the hardest things I had to overcome was preaching class. Now, most people struggle with that particular course because of their fear of public speaking. Not me. I loved to give speeches in public—even as an introvert, speaking to a large crowd never phased me

Get a Free, One-Year Subscription to Christianity Today

Blog_Image_620x325-LastChance

In 1962, Carl Henry, founder and editor of Christianity Today, attended a luncheon that was given in honor of Karl Barth, the famous Swiss Reformed theologian. Given the opportunity to ask questions to Barth, Carl Henry stood up and identified himself as the editor-in-chief of Christianity Today magazine. He proceeded to question Barth about his views on the reality of the resurrection as a matter of history, and not merely as a matter of faith. Barth, flustered by the question, pointed at Henry and asked “Did you say Christianity Today or Christianity Yesterday?” Henry, unswayed by the remark, replied, “Yesterday, today, and forever.”

Christianity Today Is Coming to Logos Bible Software!

ct_blog

The world is changing. Recent events have caused many people to stop and wonder why things are happening the way that they are. Science, politics, sexuality—all are moving in different directions at a rapid pace, leaving the church to wonder how to regain its voice in a culture that continues to ignore or ridicule the gospel message. How do pastors and ministry leaders respond to this? Should we follow the dictates of the culture, close ranks and ignore what’s going on around us, or is there a better way forward? Is there a voice that can help us instead engage the world instead of abandoning or surrendering to it?

Save 70% on Some of the Greatest Reformed Works Ever Written

Blog Header Image_Reformed Theology Bundle-620x325

Reformed theology has always had a vibrant community of theologians. John Calvin arguably wrote the first systematic theology with his Institutes of the Christian Religion. Since Calvin’s day, luminaries like John Owen, Charles Hodge, and Louis Berkhof have articulated distinctly Reformed points of view in their now-classic systematic theologies.

In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, popular pastors and writers such as R.C. Sproul and J.I. Packer brought Calvinism into the mainstream, compelling Time magazine to call New Calvinism one of the “ten ideas changing the world right now.”

3 Resources I Wish I Had When I Was in Full-Time Ministry

Christmas sermon resources

Christmas was easily my favorite holiday when I was kid. My family kept so many traditions that made the holidays special. However, it wasn’t until I became a youth pastor in my native Kentucky that I understood just how stressful Christmas could be. As anyone who works as a pastor or teacher in the church knows, Christmas time is filled to the brim with carol singing at nursing homes, choir practices, special Christmas events that bring the community into the church, and meetings to discuss the church’s plans for the coming year. On top of this, the congregation (rightly) expects to hear a word from the pastor and teachers about the nativity of our Lord.

As a youth pastor, I was tasked with teaching through the Christmas story with our teenagers. My resources, however, were pretty bad. I had a few single-volume commentaries on Matthew and Luke and the book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a great book but not exactly prime study material. I was absolutely unprepared for what is arguably the heaviest teaching season of the year.

This Christmas, you and your teaching staff can avoid running into the “book barrier” by picking up key resources for preparing Sunday School lessons and sermons. Here are a few of the resources that I return to again and again for lesson prep.

C.S. Lewis’ Ingenious Apologetic of Longing

sensuchtFor C.S. Lewis, the acclaimed Christian apologist and author, a permanent sense of longing characterized his deepest held beliefs about Christianity. He identified this feeling with the idea of sehnsucht, a German word meaning “longing” or “desire”. Sehnsucht appeared in many of Lewis’ favorite works of literature, including Norse mythology, the poems of Wordsworth, and the children’s stories of George Macdonald. It was “that unnameable something, desire for which pierces us like a rapier at the smell of a bonfire, the sound of wild ducks flying overhead, the title of The Well at the World’s End, the opening lines of Kubla Khan, the morning cobwebs in late summer, or the noise of falling waves.”
