From the master of method come these practical lines on the composition and delivery of an expository message. Of all men, Dr. Meyer is perhaps the most suited and best qualified to write on a subject like "Expository Preaching." With the possible exception of those of Charles Spurgeon, probably more of Dr. Meyer's inspired messages are in print today than those of any other one expository preacher.
Dr. Meyer wrote Expository Preaching after nearly half a century of practical experience both as a pastor and as a widely used Bible conference speaker.
F B Meyer's works are achieving new popularity and greater acclaim every day. The secret is his God-given ability to reach into the very lives of those to whom he preached—or wrote. That his method is as effective today as it was when he traveled the highways of the world cannot be denied. It is that secret and gift that he imparts in this valuable work—destined to become a valued addition to any preacher's library.
About the Author
One of the greatly loved preachers of his day, Frederick Brotherton Meyer was a pastor, author, Bible teacher and evangelist. He was born in London in 1847.
Dr. Meyer began pastoring in 1870, and in 1872 he went to Priory Street Baptist Chapel. There he met D. L. Moody, who made a lasting impression upon his life and taught him valuable spiritual lessons. These two godly men formed a lifelong friendship.
During his long and fruitful life, he preached more than 16,000 sermons. Said one author: "The phrasing of Meyer's sermons was simple and direct; he polished his discourses as an artist polishes a perfect stone. There was always a glowing imagery in his words; his speech was pastoral, lovely as an English valley washed in sunlight…In his day, great wars raged. Those who went to hear him forgot the battles."
A distinct feature of F. B. Meyer's ministry was his outcry against the social evils of his day. Not only was he effective in the temperance movement, but he was also responsible for the closing of over 500 houses of prostitution. He also formed a prison aid society.
A devoted student of God's Word, he was the author of over 40 books, including Bible biographies (character studies), devotional commentaries, sermon volumes and expository works. He also authored several pamphlets and edited a number of magazines.
Meyer's bright pen and clear style, his illustrative facility and power of application will make his writings acceptable to many who never saw his shinning face and happy smile.
