‘The Word Does the Work’

‘The Word Does the Work’
David Platt discusses how he raises the bar for biblical understanding and practice.
Interview by Collin Hansen at Christianity Today

I’m not familiar with David Platt but this interview is very interesting.

We have severely dumbed down the Word, and shown a lack of trust in the sufficiency of the Word in the way we preach. We find it necessary to supplement it with entertaining stories and quips or good practical advice for living the Christian life that are not based in the Word. This deficiency transfers into people content with a little ‘Word for the Day,’ in a devotional book at best, as opposed to deep knowledge of Scripture.
