“‘Do you, as a preacher, endeavor to bend your thought to the Scriptures, or do you use the Scriptures to support your thought?’” (Page 5)

“Ultimately the authority behind expository preaching resides not in the preacher but in the biblical text.” (Page 7)

“Whereas the idea states the truth, the purpose defines what that truth should accomplish.” (Page 72)

“In selecting passages for the expository sermon, therefore, a general principle to follow is this: Base the sermon on a literary unit of biblical thought.” (Page 30)

“Application must come from the theological purpose of the biblical writer.” (Page 59)

[An] outstanding introduction to the task of preparing and presenting biblical sermons. More than any other book of the past quarter century, Biblical Preaching has profoundly influenced a generation of evangelical preachers.
