In our new series Preaching Christ, we discuss how great preachers of the past proclaimed God’s Word in order to learn what preaching has been and can be.  In this first episode in the series, we look at the style, themes, delivery, and impact of Walter A. Maier, the first speaker of the Lutheran Hour.  What can we learn from him?  What can he say to our day?  Whether you preach regularly or listen to preaching, join us in our discussion of this great man.
