The Germans Take On Alvin Plantinga

Tony Merida on Christ-Centered Preaching

Sure. I have a broader definition of expository preaching than some. I define it as Word-driven preaching. It’s saying what God has said in His Word, and declaring what God has done in His Son, and applying that message to the hearts of people.

Some Questions about Inductive Bible Study

Yes, there are many books on the market on how to study the Bible. However, the traditional approach to the inductive method (a model that presents steps of observation, interpretation, and application) is most often depicted in popular level titles. The one notable exception to this is the Bauer and Traina book…
