Product Details

Text-Driven Preaching urges pastors to faithfully present true expository messages from the pulpit. The authors know that one of the major reasons why today's church is spiritually anemic is the loss of scriptural content in contemporary preaching. In the rush to appear relevant, illustrations from hit television shows and bursts of pop psychology substitute for the Word of God. Contributors bringing us back to the Bible here include:

  • Daniel L. Akin
  • David L. Allen
  • Bill Bennett
  • David Alan Black
  • Adam Dooley
  • James M. Hamilton, Jr.
  • Ned L. Mathews
  • Paige Patterson
  • Jim Shaddix
  • Jerry Vines
  • Robert Vogel
  • Hershael York

Tragically, today's pulpit is often a place of confusion rather than clarity. The preacher knows to do something with the text, but many preachers seem unsure of exactly what they are to do. Paul's command to Timothy is clear enough-preach the Word. In Text-Driven Preaching, Dr. Danny Akin and a team of expositors provide both encouragement and guidance to preachers-showing how to preach the text of Scripture. The book deserves a prime placement on every preacher's reading list.
R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
