The apostle Paul instructed Timothy to "preach the word!... Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching"? (2 Tim. 4:2). This instruction is in keeping with the principle reflected in Acts that the proclamation of God's Word is the heart of corporate worship. Yet in many churches, preaching is in decline under the influence of a culture that prefers entertainment to exposition.
In this volume, fourteen experienced preachers reaffirm the centrality of preaching in the life of the church as they explore what the Scriptures say about the mandate, meaning, motivation and method of preaching. With wisdom and conviction, they remind us that God works through the faithful preaching of His Word, no less in the twenty-first century than in the first.
"When you mention the name Steven J. Lawson, one word comes to mind: preaching... It's passion-filled-to-overflowing preaching. It's bold, persuasive, and powerful preaching. Above all, it's expository preaching. These essays by Dr. Lawson's friends honor him and the legacy of his ministry in the best possible way by offering an exposition of expository preaching. May these essays, like Dr. Lawson's ministry, bear much fruit in the life of the church."?
