The Goal of Preaching

To quicken the conscience by the holiness of God;

to feed the mind with the truth of God;

to purge the imagination by the beauty of God;

to open the heart to the love of God;

to devote the will to the purpose of God.

— James Stewart, a once famous Scottish preacher, in his book Heralds of God (who got them from William Temple); quoted in Derek Thomas’ commentary on Isaiah, page 67

SDG,
Ezra
