Peter Adam on the importance of a theology of Preaching:
I want to provide a theology of preaching, because only theological arguments are convincing in the long term. To argue that we ought to preach because it works, or that we ought not to preach because preaching is ineffective is to descend to the realm of the merely pragmatic. And to go on preaching without substantial reformation and renewal of our practice of preaching is to minister without imagination or faith.
