All 80 sermons (preached over 6 years) are available here.
Continuing in my “pick the easiest material to preach in the Bible” theme, I have decided to attempt to tackle the Holiness Code in Leviticus as my next preaching project. Could be an unmitigated disaster, of course. I’m not much of a preacher, and trying to turn that kind of material into a sermon series is probably way, way past my very limited skill set, but at the same time, can you think of a more abused portion of Scripture by enemies of the faith today?

Not, of course, that Hollywood would ever give us a chance to do so, but in real life situations, we should know those texts so well that our response should be clear, concise, compelling, and God-honoring.
