A Concise History of the Christian World Mission: A Panoramic View of Missions from Pentecost to the Present [A Book Review]

One of my most recent readings really had an impact on me. As I am currently in a class that is taking a unique look at the challenges of world mission, I found reading J. Herbert Kane’s book on A Concise History of the Christian World Mission a fascinating exploration of how the gospel spread from the […]

Reconciling the Church’s Issue With Race and the Most Segregated Hour

We’re a week into Black /African Heritage and History Month. With that in mind, I wanted to take some time to reflect on one of the things that has still been an issue within the American experience, if not global experience. It is the issue of race and racism; more specifically, as it pertains to the Church […]

The Power of Your Eyes – [Part Five]

There is great power in one’s eyes, and as we’ve seen over the last few weeks, each mountain benefits from those whose eyes are keenly fixed and focused for the mountain that they have influence on. While it might be tempting to think that when the eyes are mentioned it would the natural eyes, for our purpose, we must consider the spiritual, and at […]

So That All Might Know: Preaching That Engages the Whole Congregation

In all of the books that I had the pleasure to read during my last semester, when I was in my sermon preparation class, I believe that the book by Thomas Troeger had some unique insights into the task of preparing sermons. While I previously wrote about his book Imagining a Sermon, this time I am covering […]

The Certain Sound of The Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority – [Review]

There are many people who respect the work and ministry of Samuel D. Proctor. He has been noted as one of the most prolific teachers in preaching. During my last semester of Divinity school, my class read his book The Certain Sound of the Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority. If there is any book in all […]

Is The Church Meant To Be Progressive or Progressing?

Over the last few years, the word progressive has been tossed around by many. There are the political who consider themselves either the progressive left or the progressive right. There are those who deem themselves to be social progressives, environmental or judicial progressives. There are even some who dare to call themselves spiritually progressive. However, when it […]

The Power of Your Eyes – [Part Three]

Over the last couple weeks, we have been looking at the power of your eyes. On this week we are going to look at the power of your eyes when you operate on the mountain of education. There is probably no more immediate impact that a person can have on the life of a young child, apart from the parent, than […]

Imagining A Sermon – [Review]

There are times when a preacher can find the task of crafting a sermon as inspiring as daring to write a book. With so many passages of scripture from which to pull a text from, you would think that it would be simple as one, two, three. However, preachers can be inspired in one moment and hit […]

For that I am grateful and look forward to this new year with great anticipation that you will accomplish great and wonderful things. I know that many people approach the new […]
