What's so special about preaching?

This is also by David Jackman on 'What's so special about preaching?', we live under the tyranny of small group bible studies and 121's. David's article is a fantastic riposte on why we need preachers.
Also while in America I saw this clip of Carl and Derek at the Westminster Seminary Preaching conference from a few years ago. Carl is waxing lyrical on a familiar theme when Derek has enough!
