Ask Phillip - Preaching from a Script?

To suggest that one type of preaching is more spiritual than another, or that the Holy Spirit works better in one way that the other, shows a serious lack of understanding of the Spirit. Phillip Jensen says that the Spirit can work just as well in the mind of the preacher in the week before when he is studying and writing his sermon, as He can in the pulpit, and warns against confusing an adrenaline rush with 'the leading of the Spirit'. He outlines some advantages and disadvantages of preaching both from a script and spontaneously.
