John Piper- What Is Preaching?

Piper is so right about what *true* preaching is here! Preaching is not simply "talking" or "lecturing"-- it is the word of God being powerfully proclaimed, explained, and applied, by the preacher and the Holy Spirit, working together in peoples' hearts, in a way that man alone cannot do!

I would only add one thing, very humbly (because I am no John Piper!), to Piper's message here. What is "eternally helpful" actually *is* "immediately practical"-- *if* we want to do all things to the glory of God!
