Light and Heat: The Puritan View of the Pulpit and the Focus of the Gospel in Puritan Preaching by Bruce Bickel
We have lost the exalted view of the pulpit that was characteristic of the Puritan era. They held both the pulpit and the Word of God in high esteem. Preaching the Word was the highest calling imaginable.In Light and Heat: The Puritan View of the Pulpit, Dr. R. Bruce Bickel shows what was admirable about their view of the pulpit and the preached Word. We would do well to listen to his admonitions and to see how far removed we are today.May God once again raise up a large number of "godly preachers.
