Do Most Pastors Care This Much?

I was reading Thabiti's blog and he had a link at the end of his post that linked to Ligon Duncan's sermon preparation essay. As you read this, think to yourself and ask yourself this question:

At the church that I'm attending right now, based on what I hear on Sunday morning, do I believe that my pastor is this careful in handling the Word of God.

I'm gonna guess the answer (for the most part) is NO!. Which is sad because what Ligon Duncan does, while a methodology that works for him and not necessarily for everybody, shows that he appreciates and has apprehended the great responsibility and seriousness of preaching.
