    Preaching the Person of Christ at Christmas part 3

    In this third episode Stephen Clark continues to discuss how he preaches the incarnation at Christmas and the importance of communicating both the supernatural and the ordinary events in a balanced way. He explains that the only way to preach the doctrine of Christ is to do so in such a way that leads to worship. Doctrine leads to doxology!
