One response to “April 2012 Issue of Brethren in Christ History and Life”
I haven’t read the whole thing, but so far Dr. Ives’ article on preaching tops my list.
Great insight from someone who has blessed my life with his God-given and experienced-honed expository preaching skills. I highly recommend his book on the gospel of Mark (a series of sermons in book form.) My husband used it for a devotional. The Elizabethtown BIC congregation has also loved and benefitted from his service as an interim pastor.
