Ancient Wisdom for Preachers
In this workshop, Augustine and John Chrysostom are our primary guides as we reflect on the joys and challenges of proclaiming the Gospel.
After sixteen centuries, the wisdom and habits of ancient preachers remains remarkably relevant. Like us, early Christian leaders preached in cultures addicted to entertainment. These preachers struggled with the desire to be well-liked by their listeners and they wondered about the best ways to persuade people to be better lovers of God and their neighbors.
