Topical vs. exigetical/expository

Filed under: God - general — quotable1988 @ 5:37 pm

While topical teaching can be helpful at certain times, a steady and unbalanced diet of it undermines [congregants’] understanding of God’s Word. God’s Word does not come to us in one-sentence blurbs, laid out under various topical headings, like an extended concordance. God’s Word comes to us in stories, parables, poetry, prophecy, and song. – Jon Nielson (at The Gospel Coalition blog)
