Expository Preaching:
Principles & Practice

Haddon Robinson (IVP: 1980, 2001)

Blurb Review


Many who wish to preach expository sermons feel ill-equipped to do so. Haddon Robinson provides a comprehensive guide to sermon preparation and delivery. In the twenty years since it first appeared, this book has become a modern classic. Much has changed during this time, however, and the author has updated and enhanced it to assist preachers who speak to the markedly different world of the twenty-first century. After defining expository preaching, Robinson presents a ten-stage process of sermon development, showing how to get from the text to the sermon, decide its purpose, shape an outline, and preach it so that people will listen. The book reads extremely well and sparkles with wisdom and wit. It is full of apt illustrations and practical help.
