Peter Mead>>Stott’s Five Paradoxes of Preaching

imageIn last Fridays blog post, Peter Mead gives us John Stott’s listing of the five paradoxes of preaching.  They are worthy of contemplation:
  1. Authentic Christian preaching is both biblical and contemporary
  2. Authentic Christian preaching is both authoritative and tentative
  3. Authentic Christian preaching is both prophetic and pastoral
  4. Authentic Christian preaching is both gifted and studied
  5. Authentic Christian preaching is both thoughtful and passionate

Peter says more about Stott’s quote, but I’ll direct you there to read it.
