Play • 49 min

In this episode, Steve Carter chops it up with four recipients of the 2022 Preaching Today Biblical Preaching Award: Ryan Roach (Western Seminary, Portland, OR), Abby Stuckle (George W. Truett Seminary, Baylor, TX), Rachel Koch (Denver Seminary, Denver, CO), and Christian Schmitt (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Hamilton, MA). This award is given on the basis of faithful biblical exposition, clear and simple structure, creativity, pastoral application to daily life, and urgency in delivery.

These students beautifully embody not just the excellence of world-class theological education, but also the humility of Jesus. They tackle some hard-hitting homiletics topics like:

  • How to preach in a multiethnic church.
  • Why preachers should know their passage AND their people well.
  • Why expository preaching is a gift to the preacher and congregation.
  • How to preach in a way your audience can absorb and process.
  • The pros and cons of Haddon Robinson’s legendary “big idea” preaching model.

This episode will add tools to your belt as a preacher, while infusing you with hope about the quality of today’s rising expositors.
