MetadataShow full item record
This project was designed to equip students at Moore Theological to develop biblically faithful, relevant application in preaching. Students participated in an 8-week training program and evaluated themselves with regards to knowledge and skills in application before and after the program. Chapter 1 explores the ministry context in which the project takes place, outlining rationale, purpose, goals, research methodologies, definitions, and limitations. Chapter 2 argues biblically that application is essential to preaching because of God’s purposes in the gospel. Chapter 3 examines key elements necessary for doing better application, including the interdependent nature of meaning and application, the importance of addressing the hearer’s behaviors, beliefs, and affections, and the preacher’s self-awareness and personal godliness. Chapter 4 details the curriculum and course implementation. Chapter 5 evaluates the project by measuring against the stated goals.
