Applied Pneumatology: What Is the Holy Spirit Doing When We Preach?

Professor, author and lay-preacher Fred Sanders speaks with Mike about what exactly the Holy Spirit is doing as we prepare a sermon, deliver it, and also what He is doing in the hearts, minds and lives of our hearers. He speaks about the second noetic office of the Spirit, the unremarkable sermon that sparked the Asbury Revival and inspiring trends in the preaching landscape today.
