From the onset of his ministry, Ray's method was to preach through entire books of the Bible, often alternating between the Old and New Testaments, giving his congregation a balanced diet of God's Word. Ray said,
the great advantage to this, over topical preaching, is that it forces one to handle the difficult themes of Scripture as well as the more popular ones. It presents truth in the balanced pattern of Scripture itself, mingling several themes in one passage. Thus it makes possible the apostolic goal of declaring the whole counsel of God. Yet, recognizing a long series could weary his congregation, Ray would sometimes shift to another series, later returning to complete the first. During these interludes Ray would often address current issues or theological questions relevant to his congregation. Here in this section you will find the great body of Ray's thematic teachings.
