Effective Preaching and Application

"Effective preaching includes application that, first, allows the Word of God to speak (which requires biblical integrity) and, second, allows the Word of God to speak as explicitly and concretely today as it did originally (which requires contemporary relevance). Preachers often "fall off the wagon," as Willimon put it, because our application lacks one or both of these elements."
