The Five Aims of All Genuine Preaching

james s stewart The Scottish preacher James S. Stewart notes the five aims of preaching:

  1. to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God
  2. to feed the mind with the truth of God
  3. to purge the imagination by the beauty of God
  4. to open the heart to the love of God
  5. to devote the will to the purpose of God.

(Heralds of God, p. 73)
