Theo 500 discussion board post turabian cite | HOMI 500 – Preparation of the Sermon | Liberty University

 Each in their own way, Spurgeon and Meyer both recognize the primary importance of the spiritual-preparedness of the preacher. In your thread, relate what you have learned about the importance of person and spiritual-preparedness in your own preaching ministry. Also explain the balance between academic, expository preparation versus solely spirit-let (or experientially-led) preparation.

Your replies must integrate your own experience as well as your textbook readings. You must seek to edify and offer counter examples for your classmates who find a different balance between this tension of expository preparation and spirit-led/experientially-led preparation.
