  • Re: How many reference books consult to write 1 sermon

    [quote user="scooter"]Are these expository sermons, MJ?[/quote] Yes to varying degrees depending upon the congregation and the preacher - the purpose of the sermon is seen as to open up the Word of God so that it nourishes the souls of the congregation.

  • Re: 50 Best Christian Books Ever

    Hamilton, your answer makes it clear that we do not have the same understanding of spiritual growth. Therefore, we would use very different methods to evaluate the presence of spiritual growth. If you have any interest in exploring the difference, I would suggest readings from the early to which Roberta Bondi has written two excellent introductions

    Hamilton, you might want to read some of the Orthodox writings on spiritual growth some of which do a good job of describing benchmarks and dangers.

    I am personally a fan of the series What's Bothering Rashi? by Avigdor Bonchek. I prefer it because it pushes me to try to see the Torah as Rashi did.

It is also structured
