Gospel proclamation is a sacred responsibility that requires a passionate and dedicated pursuit of excellence in communication. Unfortunately, a deficiency in the commitment to honing adequate skills impedes the impactful delivery of the gospel message. In contemporary times, a lack of commitment to acquiring the necessary skills for effectively disseminating the gospel has led to a discernible scarcity of sound biblical exposition. Meanwhile, the effectiveness of gospel proclamation transcends the literacy levels of both the preacher and the audience. The essence of sound biblical exposition lies not in the eloquence of words but in the clarity with which the message is conveyed. Differences in literacy between preachers and their listeners make the problem much more difficult.
