J. Kent Edwards remembers a narrative that overdue pastor J. Vernon McGee instructed approximately seeing kids in South Africa enjoying a online game of marbles within the dirt with actual diamonds. the dear stones have been being dealt with without regard for his or her real worthy. Edwards fears an identical factor occurs this present day while preachers provide Scriptural fact to listeners with no being thoroughly beaten by way of its greatness themselves within the process.

Deep Preaching is his name to "rethink" preaching. Edwards is helping preachers learn how to hold forth the notice in ways in which will powerfully switch the lives of hearers. He contends that sermons "need now not settle with ease at the lives of the listeners like airborne dirt and dust on a espresso table." He encourages preachers to affix him in eliminating the traces that moor their ministries to the status-quo and make each attempt to guide their preaching out of the "comfortable shallows." He urges them to evangelise deep sermons instead of superficial ones, relocating "beyond the yawn-inspiring to the awe-inspiring, from the trite to the transforming."
