Preaching Today

The fall issue of Southern Seminary's magazine opens with a manifesto from Al Mohler on "The State of Preaching Today."  In his indictment of contemporary trends, Mohler mentions five critical areas of concern:

1. A loss of confidence in the power of the Word.

2. An infatuation with technology.

3. An embarrassment before the biblical text.

4. An evacuation of biblical content.

5. An absence of the Gospel.
