"Preaching is the communication of truth by man to men. The truest truth
communicated in any other way than through the personality of brother man

Spurgeon said "It is the truth of God mediated through a man's voice,
life, heart, mind, in fact, his whole being. " That is why Spurgeon
preached from behind a rail, not a pulpit desk. He felt that since a man
preaches with his whole body, it should not be hidden from view.
--Dr. W.A. Criswell---
"It is to reprove sin, to rebuke individuals and groups who do wrong, and
to exhort tenderly, proving your preaching by the Bible." --Dr. John R.
