Expository preaching is crucial for the health and vitality of the church. Offering step-by-step guidance for preachers, Helm outlines what must be believed and accomplished to become a faithful expositor of God's Word. Part of the 9Marks Building Healthy Churches series.
David R. Helm (MDiv, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary) serves as lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago. He also serves as Chairman of The Charles Simeon Trust, an organization which promotes practical instruction in preaching. He is the co-author of The Genesis Factor (with Jon Dennis), a contributor to Preach the Word: Essays on Expository Preaching, and the author of The Big Picture Story Bible and 1 and 2 Peter and Jude in the Preaching the Word commentary series.

If I were teaching a preaching class and could assign the students only one book, this might be the one. It's a rare find that both introduces a topic to the novice and instructs the experienced. David's humility convicts, rebukes, instructs, and encourages me as a preacher. I pray it will do the same for you.

This little book is simply outstanding. It's the best short book on preaching I've read. Helm's advice is unfailingly wise, theologically informed, and extremely practical.

David Helm's skills as a preacher and his vast experience as a teacher of preachers make anything he says on this subject of great value. But I read him with greatest appreciation for what is most clear among his commitments: 'Staying on the line, never rising above the text of Scripture to say more than it said and never falling beneath the text by lessening its force or fullness.' Here is not merely skill and wisdom, but also faithfulness from which the truest treasures of preaching come.

Helm has given us a finely wrought and utterly compelling brief on what needs to be understood and done in order to faithfully preach the Word. This is an important book.

In this compact book, David Helm distills key principles and insights that have encouraged many at the Charles Simeon Trust preaching workshops. I have seen men reengage with the hard work of preaching preparation as David has taught this material. May that same result be multiplied by this book.

I love to see people's shocked responses when they learn that expository preaching is the first of the '9 Marks of a Healthy Church.' This priority is affirmed and explained in Expositional Preaching. David Helm issues a stirring challenge to get the message clear and right. May God be pleased to use this book to help you preach faithfully for the health of the church and the glory of God!

David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A small book on a BIG subject!May 30, 2014David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3"Expositional Preaching" by David Helm is a recent release from the 9Marks series on "Building Healthy Churches." As with the other books in this series it is compact and concise. Unfortunately, that is its major flaw. While Helm and the 9Marks editors are to be commended for addressing this topic in a volume similar to the others in the series, it quickly becomes apparent that the subject of "expository preaching" is much too involved to be adequately covered in a such a short space. While it is conceded that this volume is intended as a "starting place," it falls short of this reviewer's expectations. Although it touches upon the major topics related to preaching that need to be addressed, it skims over them so lightly that the reader is left wondering why he didn't bypass this text and go with a weightier volume to begin with. Fortunately, the other books in this series to date have been more worthy of the "9Marks" label.
