How to Preach Like Andy Stanley

5. He Tackles Tough Topics With Grace.

Last year, I heard Andy talk about the tough subject of marriage, divorce and remarriage. He handled the topic with grace, but also spoke the truth. He was courteous and recognized that everyone wouldn’t agree with his message, but that didn’t keep him away from explaining what the Bible said on the subject. People don’t feel beat up, but they know they need to make changes.

6. He Speaks With Vision.

Andy often uses the word “imagine” and paints a picture for people of what life would be like if they applied the principle he is teaching. He causes you to think about the future, whether he’s talking about marriage, faith or finances.
