Piper: sermon tone

Please read John Piper's post below on the tone of our preaching.  This is an important thought and one that I latched onto a few years ago in a different way.

My thought on this is to equate tone with sections of an orchestra.  The sounds of the prophets might be likened to trumpets, while the psalms might sound more like the string section (with all the variations that a string section offers!).  Some portions of Scripture may sound more like a reed section, and others more like the bombast that can come out of a percussion section.

You can like fill these ideas out and come up with some of your own.  Piper's point is that the tone is set by the Scripture to be preached and that is a very important insight.
