"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Expository Preaching (Roundtable Discussion)

    From the Gospel Coalition blog site:

    First of all a very short video on the future of expository preaching by Bryan Chapell (president of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis and author of Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Message):

    Then, secondly, a roundtable discussion on how and why pastors should preach expository messages from God’s Word? Three noted preachers and trainers of preachers take up the question:

    •Mike Bullmore, senior pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, Wisconsin, and former chair of the practical theology department at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School;
    •Bryan Chapell; and
    •David Helm, pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago and executive director of the Charles Simeon Trust.

    They talk not only about how to get the message right but also how to get the message across with love and respect. And they consider the challenge of learning from gifted preachers without mimicking them.
