Master’s Seminary | – Episode 4: The Quest for Cool

What is the MacArthur style? When John stands in the pulpit, what is he trying to do? Is he projecting an image or making himself relevant? Is he trying to be personable, funny, or cool? This episode looks at what preoccupies MacArthur—and what should preoccupy all expositors—in the pulpit. And in the process, it explains what David and Goliath has to do with $800 sneakers, the meaning of the word glib, and the quest for cool that defines many of America’s most prominent pastors.

  1. These fake men of God . They are only there because of them SELVES, not you , not your soul and salvation. Go run to your mega church and if you see anything like this on stage run , run , run please. You are our newest mission field . Run to a real CHURCH and save your souls my dear sister's and brother,s.

  2. Cool episode. I am tired of seeing those fancy preachers all around… And some of my youths seem to be quite attracted to such styles.
    What about Steven Lawson? Friends told me that he follows expensive suit outfitters on Instagram. And he plays Golf. So far so good. In Germany, those would be features of a rich snob. No offense, his sermons are so biblically-rooted. But what about that style? Or is it different in the US?
