Types of Preaching Through History

The Christ the Center panel, ably augmented by Glen Clary, pastor of Immanuel Orthodox Presbyterian Church of West Collingswood, NJ, had the privilege of sitting down and chatting with Dr. Hughes Oliphant Old, the John H. Leith Professor of Reformed Theology and Worship at Erskine Theological Seminary and dean of its Institute for Reformed Worship, about his latest book, volume seven in the profoundly learned and helpful series The Reading and the Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church. While the conversation included discussion of various types of preaching and the oral (versus written) form of preaching, the focus of the conversation was on the importance of lectio continua or the consecutive exposition of Scripture, book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. Christ the Center is pleased to offer this episode as a reminder to us all of the centrality of preaching, especially preaching as worship.

Hi, there! Just found your blog today and noticed you cited Hughes Oliphant Old! Thought you might be interested in a brand new Pre-Publication offer from Logos Bible Software: The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church (7 Vols.). Let me know if you’d like any more information or if you’d like to help spread the word about Old’s important work!
