Preach to the Affections

| March 14, 2016

Should pastors seek to engage their hearers’ emotions when they preach, or is that manipulation? Three pastors discussed how preaching should move the hearers, and how pastors should themselves have their affections engaged when they preach.

Voddie Baucham is dean of the seminary at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia. TGC Council member John Piper is founder and teacher of and chancellor of Bethlehem College and Seminary. Miguel Núñez, also a TGC Council member, is senior pastor of International Baptist Church and president of Wisdom and Integrity Ministries in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
