Julius Kim on Teaching for Attention and Retention

When I read Julius Kim’s Preaching the Whole Counsel of God: Design and Deliver Gospel-Centered Sermons, I read things that confirmed many of the things I do in communicating the Bible. But I also read a number of things that challenged me to make significant changes in regard to cherished ways of communicating.

I was just getting ready to leap away from working from a full manuscript in my teaching to working from an outline when I sat down with Kim at his office at Westminster Seminary California, where he teaches courses in homiletics, cross-cultural missions, pastoral ministry, and the history of preaching. If I wasn’t convinced before our conversation about the importance of being more listener-focused in my presentation of the Scriptures, I certainly was afterward.
