In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, we address every Bible teacher’s big fear—that we will be boring. Nobody wants to be boring. That’s why an article written by Peter Adam called, “Five Completely Effective Ways to Avoid Boredom in Expository Preaching” caught my eye. For this episode, I sat down with Adam, vicar emeritus of St. Judes, an Anglican church in Melbourne, Australia. We talked through strategies to avoid being boring, which include looking for ways to employ variety and to release the passion inherent in the text we’re teaching.
Adam has written a number of books, including:
- Speaking God’s Words: A Practical Theology of Preaching
- Hearing God’s Words: Exploring Biblical Spirituality
- The Message of Malachi in The Bible Speaks Today commentary series
