Farther In and Deeper Down a resurgence in expository preaching. While I was in Africa, my mission was to teach a group of preachers, lay people, and attentive Christians how to study scripture. The idea was that we, the missionaries, could preach all day long but when we leave, who would do the work? If we could train Ugandans to study scripture, then Ugandans can reach the Ugandan people with the Truth. They could discover the Truth for themselves, and that carries far more power than our standing over their shoulder. The key to any successful Christian life lies in scripture, its study and its learning. Without it, we are lost. John 8:32 ‘And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’ What better place to go for truth than to the Author of Truth?
