  1. This helped me immensely at a critical juncture in my pastoral walk. I thank God that you recorded and preserved Dr. Robinson’s message for me.

  2. I remember the first time I sat in Dr. Robinson’s preaching class. His introduction to his preaching course was in itself a mesmerizing demonstration of the power of influence in communication. He had 65 seminary students spellbound, sitting on the edge of our seats, hanging on every word he said.

    I’ve often wondered, listening to him preach, it’s almost as if he’s an actor on a stage. He’s learned the art of “performing his sermon.” That sounds negative, but I don’t mean it that way. He’s an artist at the pulpit. But he is so full of the Spirit of the Word that his delivery doesn’t “feel” performed. It feels lived out before me.

    I have often felt a little awkward practicing the delivery–almost as if I was vain. I usually just don’t do it. I’m curious, how much do others really practice the art of their delivery? and do they feel that same awkward sense of vanity?
