Preaching to the Whole Man

Some persons preach only doctrine; that makes people all head, which is a monster. Some preach only experience; that makes the people all heart, which is a monster too. Others preach only practice; that makes people all hands and feet, which is likewise a monster. But if you preach doctrine and experience and practice, by the blessing of God, you will have head, heart, and hands, and feet--a perfect man in Christ Jesus. “Rabbi” John Duncan, professor of Hebrew and Old Testament at New College Edinburgh (1796-1870)
