John Piper contends that preaching is not simply an exercise in motivational speaking. The goal of preaching is to worship God, and proclaim Him as Supreme. It is God’s desire to be glorified through the preacher, and the aim of the preacher is to respond accordingly. The Supremacy of God in Preaching is not another “how-to” guide for the pulpit ministry, but is a challenge issued toward every preacher to elevate the God of the Bible through sound Biblical preaching.
