Seasoned pastor and educator James L. Shaddix presents a philosophical and theological argument for the practice of biblical exposition as the pastor’s primary approach to preaching ministry in the local church. Shaddix emphasizes listening for God’s voice in the sermon, God-centered vs. man-centered preaching, and/or preaching for real life-change.
Jim Shaddix currently serves as Dean of the Chapel and Associate Professor of Preaching at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as Pastor-Teacher of Edgewater Baptist Church in New Orleans. He earned a B.S. in Education (1982) from Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama, a Master of Divinity (1986) and Doctor of Ministry (1992) from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Preaching (1996) from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Jim also is founder and president of Burning Heart Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit ministry organization aimed at equipping pastors and students in the practice of biblical exposition. Jim and his wife, Debra, reside in New Orleans, Louisiana.
