Quote for the Week

This quote doesn't use the word "truth" as most quotes here do, but it relates to the truth (i.e., the Word of God). It is a quote about preaching.

"Do not choose a man who always preaches on isolated texts, I care not how powerful and eloquent he may be. The effect of his eloquence will be to banish a taste of the Word of God and substitute a taste for the preacher in its place."

- as quoted in Protestant Biblical Interpretation by Bernard Ramm, 97.
