Editorial Reviews

'Derek Newton writes with experience of preaching both in the United Kingdom and abroad which makes the book rich. It is thoroughly practical and yet full of deep teaching on the whole theme of preaching within the biblical context. Every preacher, actual and potential, could find this book stimulating and a very useful guide.'
'A serious and major work on expository preaching. Thorough, detailed, carefully researched material with many in-depth examples. A goldmine of Biblical resource material...'
'The obvious fruit of a dedicated teacher of preaching... it offers rich dividends for those who will submit to its suggested discipline of study and preparation.'
No matter which area Newton examines (e.g exegesis, theology, application, illustrations), he continues to lead the reader back to scripture, and away form other potential sources of competing authority. This is the great strength of the work. Newton wants to ground preachers in scripture, and scripture alone. His thoroughness is impressive as he exegetes text and audience, and his illustrations and life stories add colour to the landscape.
