The Big Idea of Biblical Preaching: Connecting the Bible to People

Baker 2003

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Haddon Robinson has influenced generations of students and preachers through his widely used classic text, Biblical Preaching, in which he shows preachers how to communicate the Bible’s big ideas with precision. But does Robinson’s “big-idea” approach to expository preaching still work in today’s diverse cultures and fast-paced world?

The Big Idea of Biblical Preaching presents a strong defense of the ongoing relevance of this approach to expository preaching. This volume is written not only for the current generation of students but also for today’s preachers, who will find in the pages of this book a powerful approach to expository preaching.

The Logos edition of this work on preaching is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and the wealth of resources in your digital library.
