The Central Necessity of Preaching to the Health of the Church

Decline of spiritual life and activity in the churches is commonly accompanied by a lifeless, formal, unfruitful preaching, and this partly as cause, partly as effect.  On the other hand, the great revivals of Christian history can most usually be traced to the work of the pulpit, and in their progress they have developed and rendered possible a high order of preaching.  E. C. Dargan, as quoted by John Stott in Between Two Worlds, p. 114-115
