God’s Grand Plan

Dr. Abraham Kuruvilla, senior research professor of Preaching and Pastoral Ministries at DTS, discusses how God, whose grand plan is to consummate all things in Christ, involves believers in it and is worthy to be blessed.

He has served as the President of the Evangelical Homiletics Society, and in his spare time he writes preaching commentaries, and other books related to preaching, all with a focus on the hermeneutics of homiletics.  He has also served as interim preacher of a number of churches in Texas and in Massachusetts.
