Sermon Application in a Post-Christian Culture (Part 1)
Applying God's truth where biblical authority is questioned.See theme
We preach in a culture where biblical authority is not assumed, but questioned. In this environment, the task of applying God's truth can be increasingly difficult. To help with this challenge, PreachingToday.com gathered a group of experienced preachers into a recording studio in Carol Stream, Illinois, to discuss their approach to application in a post-Christian society. Around the table:
Lyle Dorsett, professor of educational ministries and evangelism at Wheaton College and Graduate School, founder and director of Christ for Children International, and senior pastor of Church of the Great Shepherd in Wheaton, Illinois. His most recent book is "Seeking The Secret Place: The Spiritual Formation of C. S. Lewis" (Brazos, 2004).
John Koessler, chairman and professor in the Pastoral Studies Department at Moody Bible Institute. John served nine years as pastor of Valley Chapel (Green Valley, Illinois). His most recent book is "True Discipleship: The Art of Following Jesus" (Moody, 2003).
