In the words of author Greg Heisler, “Spirit-led preaching is a call issued to preachers, pastors, and teachers of homiletics to recover the Holy Spirit for expository preaching in the same way we have recovered the biblical text. . . . My plan for doing this is to recover the doctrine of pneumatology (the study of spiritual beings/phenomena) for our theology of preaching, resulting in a renewed emphasis on the powerful combination of Word and Spirit working together as the catalyst for powerful expository preaching.”

Heisler thoroughly examines how the Holy Spirit illuminates and empowers the preacher, opens the hearts of the hearers, and applies the message to their lives. Indeed, to ignore the Holy Spirit’s role in sermon preparation and delivery would be a considerable oversight.

Resource Experts
Greg Heisler has written an important book that will help to educate a new generation of evangelicals about the power of preaching through the Holy Spirit and the Word.

    Heisler is to be commended for addressing this most important topic. By doing so he disabuses preachers of the notion that crafting sermons is a merely mechanical exercise. While most preachers would deny that they approach sermon preparation as simply an academic exercise, our actions often say otherwise. Preachers can become so focused on the methods of expository sermon development that we fail to utterly cast ourselves upon the Spirit for His power and anointing. Whether it is in sermon preparation or delivery the Spirit plays a vital role in true Christ-honoring preaching. Heisler writes with a winsome style. He captures the reader's attention through compelling arguments, biblical evidence, and appropriate illustrations. The most beneficial contribution of Heisler's work is chapter six on "The Spirit and the Preacher's Sanctification." Here the author reminds us that God is not only concerned with the message, He is also concerned with the messenger. God requires that His preachers be holy and a fit vessel for the task to which He has called them. In a day in which many preachers are flirting with worldliness in the name of cultural relevance, Heisler issues a convicting warning that "Spirit-empowered preaching is preaching out of the overflow of the heart" (p. 81).
