Matthew R. Perry


Blogging is simply a hobby. Teaching and preaching the Word of God is my calling and my passion. Although some of the articles posted here will deal with areas of study in which I engaged in my M.Div. and D.Min. work at Southern Seminary, the majority will be from the sermon manuscripts worked out from my week-to-week study of God’s Word.

Here are a few of the most recent series, but more will be posted soon:

Libertarian Mindset in the Church (Jude 5-16)

Your Burning Bush Speaks (Exodus 3-4)

Liveblogging my DMin Week at Southern (June 24-29, 2007)

You Belong to the City — Don’t You (Nehemiah 11:1-2)?
