on preaching through Paul’s letters

Over on TC’s blog – they are discussing Viola’s book Pagan Christianity and the recent post discuses the order of Paul’s letters and the chronological order of the NT Church.  The author suggests that many of the supposed theological distortions in the present day church are based on a misarrangement of Paul’s letters as they are presently in the NT Canon.  They argue that reading Paul and the NT church chronologically will aid in promoting healthier theology in the church.

I do not necessarily agree with this but it does make me wonder how it would work to preach through Paul’s letters chronologically rather than canononically? would this just be another way of growing and developing a congregation theologically and historically?  or no?

What say you?  You can see TC’s blog post for the ordering of Paul’s letters according to Viola and Barna.
