*DISCLAIMER: This is by no means an attack on Jack Hyles, and that is not the intention of my post...i'm hoping to see some discussion on the "art" of preaching develop. I was recently listening to some sermon tapes of Jack Hyles preaching that a friend of mine let me borrow. Although i did enjoy the message and did get something out of it, i had a hard time because he seemed to do a lot of sniffing, snorting and coughing; almost on a regular basis. My questions: Should a preacher be aware of such mannerisms, and should he do something about them? And does such mannerisms (or any annoying mannerisms on the part of the preacher) hinder you from hearing the message? And please, don't beat up on Jack Hyles, that isn't my intention.
