Christ-Centered Preaching: An Overview

Richard Mayhue | December 5, 2016

This overview offers a survey of the contemporary Christ-Centered Preaching movement (hereafter CCP), focusing on its: (1) profile, (2) proponents, and (3) alleged proofs for acceptance. Next, the unintended improprieties of this phenomenon are discussed with attention devoted to: (1) an improper use of hermeneutics, (2) an improper view of God, and (3) an improper view of Scripture. Finally, because Christ-centered preaching practiced properly reflects actual New Testament preaching examples, major New Testament emphases are explored. In conclusion, seven identifying characteristics of a biblically-directed, Christ-centered preacher are de- scribed.
