Michael Quicke: How I Preach

Michael Quicke: And this is How I Preach

[Michael and I connected at the Evangelical Homiletics Society several years ago. This Britisher (with both Cambridge and Oxford pedigrees) is a perspicacious writer on matters related to preaching. Before his fourteen years at Northern Seminary, he was principal of Spurgeon’s College, London—the largest Baptist seminary in Europe—for about a decade, tenth in line to C. H. Spurgeon himself! Michael’s pastoral heart, international

Another <em>New</em> Commentary!

This is a rehash of an old post, to announce my new commentary that’s just come out: Ephesians: A Theological Commentary for Preachers.

I’m frequently asked by my students about commentaries I employ in my preaching prep.

The Preacher sought to find delightful words and to write words of truth correctly. The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd

Genesis 15:1−16:16

Mature faith even in unfavorable circumstances enables the believer experience blessing and bring blessing to others.

Taking the patriarch outside to view the night sky, God unambiguously asserts that Abram would have innumerable seed. Yahweh who “brought forth” Abram from Ur (15:7), could surely “bring forth” a heir from Abram’s body (15:4), as he illustrated by “bringing out” Abram to view the night sky (15:5). To this Abram responds with faith (15:6). But

Company!

Apparently you don’t need human company any more. Or even a pet. Now we have a drone to go jogging with!

In last month’s CHI (Computer Human Interaction) conference in Seoul, researchers shared the latest in human interaction with digital technologies. Computer science, cognitive psychology, design, social science, anthropology, artificial intelligence, etc., were some of the fields represented.

Calm!

A group of scientists from the University of California, Davis, and from University of California, San Francisco, suspect that they’ve found a way to quiet stress signals in the brain.

Eat sugar!

(Of course, I knew that all along, and agree heartily, particularly when aforementioned sugar is found in the species of health food called cheesecake! In fact, I’m pretty stressed out right now. Hmmm ….)

These folks conclude that because of this property of sugar, one can

Water!

Water!

You can be drunk when you haven’t drunk!

In recent article in Physiology & Behavior, titled “Mild Hypohydration Increases the Frequency of Driver Errors during a Prolonged, Monotonous Driving Task,” researchers from Loughborough University in Leicestershire, showed that even mildly dehydrated drivers make more than twice as many mistakes as those adequately hydrated. And the number of mistakes was equivalent those who were driving after consuming alcohol.
