Preaching to the heart
Tim Keller, Tim Keller, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York, came to Oak Hill for a half-day conference on 19 November 2008. He gave two lectures on Preaching to the heart.

Jonathan Edwards believed that the ultimate purpose of preaching is not only to make the truth clear, but also to make it real affecting and life-changing. This is usually covered under the topic of "application", though framing the subject in that way often results in a "tack-on" of practical advice after a dry, academic exposition.

How can we preach the text from first to last in a way that exalts Christ, changes heart motivations, produces wisdom and wonder, persuades the sceptical and results in real life change? In his two lectures, Tim Keller explores these challenges to the preacher.

Tim Keller is the author of recently published The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism.
