Many Thanks to R. Kent Hughes

Posted: April 17, 2009 by Rick Hogaboam in Homiletics/Preaching

I took a sabbatical leave recently to Spokane, WA at Christ the Redeemer Church for a preaching workshop. I ended up in the small group with R. Kent Hughes as my instructor (bio below), which was a tremendous blessing. He is one of the great American expositors and I considered it a honor to spend some time chatting with him inbetween sessions. He is a class act. He even personally mailed me some resources on how to file sermon illustrations. 

Lastly, I just want to say that Hughes is a great example of  the Calvinistic, Evangelical, Bible Exposition that was evident in Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ ministry.

Here is a link to some of his audio sermons:

R. Kent Hughes is Senior Pastor Emeritus of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois. Hughes is the author of numerous books, including the best-selling Disciplines of a Godly Man. He is also editor and contributor for the projected 50-volume Preaching the Word series, including Mark: Jesus, Servant and Savior, which received the E.C.P.A. Gold Medallion Book Award for best commentary in 1990. Hughes served as Senior Pastor of College Church for 27 years and retired at the end of 2006. He came to Wheaton from California where he pastored two churches. He holds a BA from Whittier College, an MDiv from Talbot School of Theology, a DMin from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a DD from Biola University.
