Articles!

For those interested in some of the esoterics (!) of preaching, here are two recent articles (as downloadable pdfs) published in Dallas Seminary’s journal, Bibliotheca Sacra.

He has won an Academy Award, three Golden Globes, the Lifetime Acheivement Award from the American Film Institute, he’s been knighted by Queen Elizabeth, and was voted by People magazine as the Sexiest Man of the Century, when he was 69 years old!
