Olasky on Writing Clearly

I've been thinking lately about the need for academics to write clear prose. Instead of giving examples of those who do this poorly (!), I'll mention one who does this well: Doug Moo. I've been reading through his commentary on Philemon as part of my devotions. Virtually every sentence is crisp and clear instead of complicated and cumbersome.

So when I saw this clip by Marvin Olasky--in answer to the question of what we can learn from Calvin--I gave a hearty amen!
