Easter Preaching: Be Clear, Not Clever

A good word here from Mark Driscoll:
My encouragement to all Christian preachers is to not get too fancy on Easter.

It is the day we want to be incredibly clear about the death of Jesus for our sins and the resurrection of Jesus for our salvation. We do not need to be clever. We need to be clear. And we need to add to that clarity a fitting and authentic excitement for the victory of Jesus Christ over Satan, sin, death, hell, and the wrath of God while calling sinners to be saved.

Mark goes on to include some of the key points from N.T. Wright's landmark book on the resurrectiono f Christ.
