J.I. Packer on Preaching

by | Dec 11, 2015 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Calvin understood the preaching office as a matter of relaying what God is saying through the text. That is, you expound the text as you discern its flow and its meaning. You state it, you break it down into little bits and then put it together again. … [The preacher can say] God speaks to you, each one, through the word that I speak to you because the word that I speak to you is my attempt to echo what’s there in the text.
— (J. I. Packer, as quoted in Leland Ryken’s book, J.I. Packer, page 365-366).
