Hughes Old on the Preaching of MacArthur

Hughes Oliphant Old has published his last volume on the history of preaching, and he has some interesting comments to make regarding the preaching ministry of John MacArthur.  Hughes Old isn’t someone that I have terribly high regard for, because he has some unfortunate liberal leanings in Biblical interpretation, such as not believing in Satan as a person.

Yet it’s interesting to see his perspective about MacArthur, and the praise he offers, though in an underhanded way.

Phil Johnson has published Hughes Old section on the preaching of MacArthur on his blog.

MacArthur’s Op-Ed piece in the Washington Post

John MacArthur has written an excellent op-ed piece called ‘Read the Gospels: JC is not PC‘.

Would Jesus receive a warmer welcome from world religious leaders, the media elite, or the political gentry today? Anyone who has seriously considered the New Testament knows very well that he would not. Our culture is devoted to pluralism and tolerance; contemptuous of all absolute or exclusive truth-claims; convinced that self-love is the greatest love of all; satisfied that most people are fundamentally good; and desperately wanting to believe that each of us is endowed with a spark of divinity.  Against such a culture Jesus’ message strikes every discordant note.
