Recently I had a discussion with eight 30 something married men from my church about preaching. We eventually talked about what things they would like to see more of in sermons. One comment summed it all up for me, “we want sermons to be like Steve Jobs presentations”. Whereas my gold standard for preaching is men like Haddon Robinson these 30 something men had their own gold standard for communication, Steve Jobs.
So what do Haddon Robinson and Steve Jobs have in common? Should they have much in common? Should our sermons be more like Steve Jobs’ presentations?
