Kansas style

On Monday, I shall be delighted to welcome a guest post on this blog from Professor Mike Graves, Wm. K. McElvaney Professor of Preaching and Director of Continuing Education at the Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas.

Mike combines a keenly incisive mind with a wonderful acerbic sense of humour, as you can probably tell from the following quotes:

“A sermon is only 26 letters strategically arranged”

– Foreword to Preacher’s A to Z by Richard Littledale

“if preaching intended to enliven the church – why is it killing so many ministers?”

– from The Fully Alive Preacher by Mike graves

Watch this space for more from Mike on Monday
