Some might say good preaching is when the pastor opens with a funny joke, strings together a series of disconnected Bible verses and clever anecdotes, and then closes with an inspirational quote. But is this the kind of preaching that most glorifies God, honors his Word, and edifies his people?
In Preaching: A Biblical Theology, pastor Jason Meyer examines the biblical precedent for preaching in both the Old and New Testaments and offers practical guidance related to the what, how, and why of expository preaching for today.
The most comprehensive biblical theology on the topic, this resource will help you identify good preaching and embrace it as a means to encounter - and be transformed by - the living God.

My friend Jason Meyer has a firm grasp not only on the theology of preaching, but also on the theology we're called to preach. He is gripped by the Christ-centered plotline of the Bible and understands something that desperately needs to be recovered in our day if the church is ever going to experience the kind of reformation many of us long for: the preacher is not called to say many different things - but rather the same thing over and over, in many different ways, from every different text.

Jason Meyer's work cuts a new swath in the plethora of books on preaching. Meyer grounds his view of preaching in biblical theology, showing that the proclamation of Gods Word fits within the story line of Scripture. The reader will find wisdom on a multitude of other topics, such as the nature of expository preaching and the role topical preaching should play in the pulpit. The book breathes out a passion for God and a joy in Jesus Christ, so that the weight and gladness of preaching pulsate throughout the work.

Here Jason Meyer takes us on a sure-footed journey through the whole of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, unfolding for us what the entire Bible reveals about preaching. The result is a luminous, deeply grounded biblical theology for the ministry of the Word, and a winsome, compelling apologetic for expository preaching! Preaching: A Biblical Theology is a very important book that will be read and discussed by serious-minded Christians far and wide.
