Biblical Preaching: The Development and Delivery of Expository Messages

  • Author: Haddon W. Robinson
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Haddon Robinson wrote Biblical Preaching 27 years ago. It has become a modern classic on the preparation and delivery of expository sermons. Much has changed, however, since it was first published, so Robinson has undertaken the task of updating his work to benefit a new generation of preachers who will speak to a markedly different world. While retaining its original outline and Robinson’s 10-stage process of sermon development, this new edition offers significant improvements. Many of the illustrations and arguments have been updated, the prose has been changed to gender-inclusive language, each chapter is enhanced with suggestions for further study, and the discussions of narrative and inductive preaching have been expanded.

Robinson’s book offers a bracing and yet enjoyable whirlwind tour of homiletical theory. If you are looking for a book to challenge you and to enrich how you go about the privileged work of preaching the gospel, this book won’t disappoint. . . . Biblical Preaching can be a helpful resource in polishing some of the most basic homiletical skills that we place into the service of the proclamation of the gospel.

—Richard Gurgel, Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly

The homiletics primer of choice for over 100 seminaries and Bible colleges is now, finally, in its second edition. . . . Robinson’s book is an excellent primer, the one I recommend and use. The second edition is even better than the first. Robinson has thought himself clear on the mysterious process of birthing a sermon. Novices can cut their eye teeth on this book, and seasoned preachers will see in black and white what they have done intuitively for years. The 10 methodical stages with their examples and exercises make the art of preaching accessible. . . . If you’ve read the first edition, read the second. Some light bulbs may turn on for you. If you haven’t read the first, jump straight to the second, and see why more than 200,000 copies of this book are in print.

—Jeffrey Arthurs, Journal of the Evangelical Homiletics Society

Biblical Preaching brims with homiletic wisdom from a master of the art. Robinson not only shares insight about exegeting passages for preaching, he also provides many strategies on how to communicate Scripture in the beneficial manners. . . . Whether a preacher is a neophyte or a seasoned veteran, this homiletical handbook rewards its readers thirty- and sixty- or even a hundredfold.

The Clergy Journal

One of the most significant releases of the year is the second edition of Haddon Robinson’s Biblical Preaching. Robinson’s volume has become a standard text of expository preaching at evangelical colleges and seminaries, and the second edition has been eagerly awaited. While retaining the solid content of the first edition, Robinson has also provided helpful updates which relate to the changing homiletical scene of the last two decades. The new edition is sure to guarantee Biblical Preaching its place in homiletical libraries for another generation.

Preaching

Robinson’s sermonic method is remarkably complete. . . . The exercises at chapter ends should prove helpful to homiletical teachers as well as those who would like to refresh themselves in the basics. Biblical Preaching will be a welcome addition to many pastors’ libraries.

Preaching and Teaching from the Old Testament: A Guide for the Church

  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 2003
  • Pages: 222

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Developed out of tried and tested teaching material, Kaiser exhibits a straightforward and accessible writing style. The opening chapters deal with the value, problem, and task of preaching from the Old Testament. Kaiser then provides a practical focus by examining preaching and teaching from the texts of various genres (proverbs, prophecy, Torah, etc.). A final chapter examines the relevance of the Old Testament in speaking to a contemporary audience. Pedagogical features include a glossary, a suggested outline/worksheet for expository preaching, and three indices.

Walter Kaiser gives a solid defense for preaching from the Old Testament and provides helpful insights on Old Testament backgrounds and interpretation. His hints for preaching the genres of the Old Testament will be of value to any preacher.

—Scott M. Gibson, Haddon W. Robinson Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

I always listen when Walter Kaiser, learned Old Testament scholar and preacher par excellence, speaks! Here is the very best advice—from the very best—as to how to preach the whole counsel of God. Every preacher should own this book.

R. Kent Hughes, pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Ill.

The Bible of the early church was the Old Testament. It might be an interesting experiment for a pastor to preach from the Old Testament for a year to a twenty-first-century church. Preaching and Teaching from the Old Testament would be a reliable and practical guide to help pastors through that great expanse of God’s eternal truth.

Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching and president, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Sensitive to the various literary forms found in the Bible, [Kaiser] provides guidelines for preaching and teaching from Old Testament narratives, Wisdom material, prophetic texts, laments, laws, hymns of praise, and apocalyptic forms. He concludes his treatment of each form with an illustration of preaching a representative text. This is a fine guide for effective preaching and teaching.

—Dianne Bergant, Bible Today

Walter C. Kaiser Jr. . . . has long been recognized for his theological conservatism and insightful scholarship, and the more than 30 books he has authored have consistently demonstrated that these two virtues need not be incompatible with each other. Preaching and Teaching from the Old Testament is no exception. . . . Kaiser’s ‘statements,’ his theses, are valid and beneficial. They are biblical, sound, orthodox, and scholarly. The book is a methodological delight. Kaiser’s descriptions of various Old Testament genres and his demonstrations of how to preach these genres are priceless. The book is worth your money and time.

—Francis C. Rossow, Concordia Journal

2,200 Quotations from the Writings of Charles H. Spurgeon

  • Author: Tom Carter
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1988
  • Pages: 383

Tom Carter began reading Spurgeon in his late teens, picking out striking statements from the nineteenth-century British pastor’s sermons and quoting them in his Bible teaching. After spending 10 years reading all of Spurgeon’s 3,561 sermons, Tom compiled this book of 2,200 quotations. The quotations are alphabetically arranged by subject, with a section on specific Scripture texts, from Genesis to Revelation.

A marvelous reference tool, but much more. It is one of those rare books that will compel you to keep on reading—and still wish for more. This profound collection is certain to be a treasured and much-used volume.

John MacArthur, pastor-teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

I have read Spurgeon more than any other single author outside the Bible. My own soul has rejoiced a thousand times in the spiritual perception provided by the prince of preachers. Tom Carter has done us all a favor in capturing the more poignant insights of that London Divine. These spiritual insights are now yours for quick reference.

W. A. Criswell, founder, Criswell College

An excellent anthology of Spurgeon quotations, arranged both topically and by Bible reference. Spurgeon is the master of illustration and the ‘illuminating remark’ that makes Scripture live.

Warren Wiersbe, noted scholar and theologian

Hardly any preacher can afford to be without this volume. It is invaluable in stirring thought and imagination, suggesting ways of presenting biblical truth, and providing material for quotation. Perhaps as important, the book can be read devotionally.

Jay Adams (from the Foreword) former director of advanced studies and professor of practical theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

Tom Carter earned a BA from the University of Idaho, an MDiv from Fuller Theological Seminary, and a DMin from Westminster Theological Seminary. He is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dinuba, CA. Carter is the author of 13 Crucial Questions Jesus Wants to Ask You and They Knew How to Pray.

1,500 Illustrations for Biblical Preaching

  • Editor: Michael P. Green
  • Publisher: Baker
  • Publication Date: 1989
  • Pages: 448

Illustrations do not replace good preaching founded on God’s Word, but they add to its presentation, sometimes striking deep into a hearer’s heart. The right illustration can explain, clarify, and apply truth to your sermon. Dr. Green has carefully selected, developed, and edited these illustrations for use by pastors, Bible study teachers, and those who preach the Word of God. The illustrations are arranged alphabetically by topic, covering subjects from abortion, drugs, and divorce to faith, commitment, and Christian living. The book also includes a section of illustrations from selected Scriptures.

The anecdotes, quotes, poems, and observations in this book are the best on the market today. I recommend them highly to students at Denver Seminary, and I am delighted to endorse them to biblical preachers who know the power of the phrase ‘let me illustrate.’
