Preaching: Great Preachers

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.—1 Corinthians 1:26-27

I'm against the idea of putting the "big preachers" on tape and playing them back to the congregations that feel they are being starved by listening to "little preachers."

Fallacy, brethren—a thousand times, fallacy!

If we could have the Apostle Paul on tape recordings and let him stand here and preach, he could do no more for you than the Holy Ghost can do, with The Book and the human conscience....

Oh, brethren, I would not detract from God's great men, but I can safely say that that's not what the church needs.

The church needs to listen to the inner voice and do something about it! The Tozer Pulpit, Volume 1, 108-109.

"Lord, we're inundated today with 'big preachers.' And while we appreciate their gifts and ministries, I pray today for all of my brothers who are 'little preachers.' Help them not to be discouraged by their seeming smallness but to be faithful servants of Yours, declaring with great passion the message of the Book, in the power of the Holy Spirit. That's what the church needs! Amen."
