"...if preachers are not finding sermon preparation hard work they are not giving their sermons a fair crack of the whip. Of course there are other sides of the picture: it is a privilege of privileges to be driven to such involvement in the Word of God, to be required to buckle down to the precious Scriptures. Yes indeed, but it is also demanding, frequently burdensome, rarely easy - and always, in the event, endlessly delightful! One part inspiration, nine parts perspiration." - Motyer, Preaching? - p13.
