This work shows that Spirit-filled illuminated preaching takes place in two parts: as the preacher studies and meditates upon his biblical text, resulting in personal convictions; and as he conveys these truths to his hearers, trusting that the Spirit will illumine their hearts.
Jeffery Crotts was raising in a Christian family in Virginia Beach, Virginia. At the age of 17 he became a Christian, and at 18 sensed a call to preach. He pursued pastoral training at Liberty University and The Master's Seminary, as well as ministry internships. In 1994 he met Judith, a Biblical Counseling and English major at The Master's College. They were married in 1997, and in 1998 Jeffrey joined the pastoral staff of the Bible Church of Little Rock, Arkansas. He now ministers as senior pastor at Anchorage Grace Church in Alaska. They have been blessed with six children.
"I'm thankful for Jeff Crotts' balanced and sharply focused emphasis on the Holy Spirit's illuminating ministry...Here is a sound, biblical antidote to the shallow superficiality and silly pragmatism that have commandeered to many pulpits today." - John MacArthur, pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California, USA
