Great Sermon! So often preaching in Reformed churches dots the "i's" and crosses the "t's" of sound exegesis, theology, and application; but lacks heart and passion. This great message by Dr. Beeke struck me most as he spoke of John Bunyan's passion, creativity, and heart in preaching. As I think about what I've heard, it only makes me want more of God's power and genuine heart in my preaching. May God help us who preach to do so not only with accuracy, but with faithful hearts, hot for God.

Great Sermon! Best and soundest sermon I have heard in a long time! Dr. Beeke's passionate presentation of the genius of Puritanism should be heard by every pastor or preacher today. Some need to be reminded, some rebuked, some encouraged and exhorted to preach biblically or not at all! The pulpits of our evangelical and our Reformed churches are filled with men who have either never begun, or have given up, preaching with purpose and with power. We may have rationalized our fruitlessness and faithlessness; but God will call us to account nonetheless. The question must be asked, do we believe the gospel or not? Do we believe in heaven and hell or not? Only a return to passionate, experiential preaching of the doctrine of sovereign grace can save the church from total irrelevance and final destruction! May God give us grace to heed the words of Dr. Beeke, and start preaching like we mean it!
