Last Fall Baker Books asked me to conduct a series of interviews in Chicago on teaching andteach-the-text-commentary-series preaching the text of Scripture. The interviews are meant to focus attention on a new commentary series called “Teach the Text.” I have endorsed the series, which is exceptionally well-conceived. I think pastors and teachers are going to love it. You can find out more about it here.

In the interviews below I ask three pastors from the Chicago area about their patterns of study, teaching, and preaching Scripture. We also talked about the challenges of preparing, teaching, and preaching in modern culture. I thought their insights very helpful and hope you will agree.

Crossroads Baptist Church in The Woodlands, TX has been a key partner in Read the Bible for Life in the past year. They recently culminated a year of reading through the Bible with this wonderful 30 min. read-through the highlights of the Story. After an introduction by Associate Pastor Calvin Pearson, the readings begin about 14 minutes in. I have also included a PDF of the Script for those of you who might want to do this in your church. Enjoy.
