There is nothing like great preaching, but how do you identify a biblical sermon? As we continue our celebration of African-American History month here on Equipped, we will consider the legacy and uniqueness of expository preaching in the African-American style. No matter what your church tradition may be, we promise you that you will learn to listen in new ways to the messages in church!
