SEBTS Conference - James E. Hightower March 23, 1982

  • • James E. Hightower was the editor of Proclaim Magazine in the Church Administration Department of the Sunday School Board. The lecture begins with James Hightower being introduced as the conference lecturer (00:00-02:37). Hightower lays out the topics of his lecture (02:38-05:13). In his first topic, Hightower walks through the Christian liturgical calendar year, and he argues that preaching around the events of Jesus’ ministry is beneficial for the church (05:14-25:07). In his second topic, Hightower gives a method of preaching through the Bible chronologically (25:08-30:39). In his third topic, Hightower gives a method of preaching through the civil and denominational calendar, and he says that calendars are a great way to know in advance what the topic or sermon text will be for Sundays throughout the year (30:40-46:02). Hightower opens for questions, and the first question is about the benefits of using a lectionary (46:03-50:22). The second question is about spiritual growth through using the lectionary, and the lecture ends with Hightower giving a word of thanks to the audience (50:23-52:12).
