Ancient Christians didn’t “give talks,” they didn’t have monthly “fast and testimony meetings.” But Dr. Kristian S. Heal says the preaching of sermons about the gospel of Jesus Christ was a central part of early Christian experience. We discuss his chapter “Preaching Christ: Scripture, Sermons, and Practical Exegesis,” from the book Ancient Christians: An Introduction for Latter-day Saints.
