In this book, Mark Dever and his former student Greg Gilbert offer a theological and practical guide emphasising the centrality of expositional preaching - sermons intentionally rooted in a specific Bible text.
Dever and Gilbert clearly explain how God exercises His divine power through the Word, making it the basis of any relationship we have with Him. Thus, preaching directly from Scripture should be at the centre of church life. Toward that goal, the authors give practical advice on how pastors can decide what texts to preach on, how to prepare and outline their sermons, and how to deliver and review those presentations.
Pastors will especially appreciate the book's final section: transcripts of past sermons from Dever and Gilbert augmented by insightful conversations between them about how each sermon was planned and whether or not it was effectively implemented.
