Joel Beeke says that preachers are like spiritual athletes with a need to develop their skills. Thus, there is a need for the preacher to evaluate his sermons, reminding the reader that C.H. Spurgeon told his own students to leave off altogether if they ever think they can preach as well as they should.
In this little booklet, based on 1 Corinthians 3:5-15, Dr Beeke suggests five questions that the preacher should ask himself about this preaching: - Did I preach as God's servant? - Did I preach to build God's church? - Did I preach Christ as the only foundation? - Did I build my sermons with the precious materials of Reformed experiential preaching? - Did I preach for the Master's reward?
"... these words of my dear friend Joel Beeke have searched and encouraged me. They are fascinating, and I particularly liked them because they were not crushing words, rather sensible, winsome and practical. Thank God for them."? - Geoff Thomas
