Preaching: What is your favorite biblical book to preach from?
know, I honestly can’t answer that, Michael. I don’t have a favorite
verse. I don’t have a favorite character. I don’t have a favorite book.
I know it’s disappointing to people. They’ll say, when they ask me to
sign something, “Just put your favorite verse there.” I often may put
the verse I just preached on if it follows a particular meeting where
we were there together.
I am crazy about books from the Old
Testament. Some of them are easier to preach through than others. Of
course there are some in the New Testament I am drawn to [such as] II
Timothy because of its emotion, Paul’s last letter. I love the letter
to the Hebrews. Romans is a magnificent letter. I’m preaching right now
through Mark, and it’s fast becoming my favorite gospel. It used to be
John but that’s what I preached last.
