Is this ironic? The Grand Rapids Press on Saturday wrote this about Rob Bell’s homiletics conference: “Absent from the agenda at an upcoming seminar on sermons: How to alliterate three preaching points by starting them all with the same letter [isn’t the last part of this sentence redundant?]. After all, turning gospel teaching into rational proofs of Christian faith is how many church pastors lost the art of preaching, said the Rev. Rob Bell.”
The name of the conference is “Poets, Prophets, and Preachers.”
Alliteration is dead. Long live alliteration!
