Tuesday is for Preaching
Recent survey done by Lifeway Research shows a gross lack of gospel understanding in American Churches. According to the survey results an overwhelming majority of pastors are not setting forth a clear, complete, logical and sequential presentation of the Bad News/Good News.
One pastor is doing something about it. Dr. David Nicholas has written a new book I want to recommend. The book is titled Whatever Happened to the Gospel? Dr. Nicholas has also started a great concept; he calls them Gospel Bootcamps. I think the pattern of what he is doing is reproducible all around the country by interested practitioners who want to see the gospel delivered with power to a new generation. It certainly caught my eye (a former preaching professor at a seminary in California) as a workable program.
Pray for me as I pray and consider how I might duplicate what Dr. Nicholas has started in Florida, here in Illinois. Meanwhile, get the book and pray for a revival of gospel and sound doctrinal preaching in our churches.
