Through blogging, phone conversations and briefly in person last year in Greensboro at the SBC annual meeting, I have come to know and really appreciate Ben Brammer. Ben and I enjoyed a small amount of interchange through a couple of article last year that found their way through a couple of our state Baptist newspapers. Rather than being two people who are opposed with each other, we have developed a friendship that I am thankful for. Ben is the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Rocky Mount, North Carolina and is a Ph.D. candidate at Southeastern Seminary with an emphasis in Homiletics. Ben has begun a new project entitled “Preaching that Matters.” This project is an effort to examine, discuss and consider effective, biblical preaching. If you preach, or are interested in biblical preaching, I would strongly encourage you to check it out and participate in this forum.
