Quotes (629)

Why Johnny Can't PreachFaith is not built by preaching introspectively (constantly challenging people to question whether they have faith); faith is not built by preaching moralistically (which has exactly the opposite effect of focusing attention on the self rather than on Christ, in whom our faith is placed); faith is not built by joining the culture wars and taking potshots at what is wrong with our culture. Faith is built by careful, thorough exposition of the person, character, and work of Christ.

- T. David Gordon

  1. I can’t comment on the book as a whole, having not read it, but the quote in the post is accurate. This part is especially incisive: “Faith is not built by preaching introspectively (constantly challenging people to question whether they have faith),” but I have to admit, although I agree with it, I find it very difficult to get the victory over doing it.
