In the homiletics field, a text has been needed that blends hermeneutics, sermon development, and sermon delivery. Engaging Exposition fills that gap with what its experienced authors call a "3-D approach" to preaching.
Bill Curtis writes about the Discovery process—how to equip the student to discover the meaning of a biblical text by using sound principles of interpretation, and to move from biblical analysis to biblical interpretation.
Danny Akin addresses the Development process—how to equip the student to develop expository sermons based upon results of the interpretive process, and to move from the Main Idea of the Text (MIT) to the completed sermon.
Stephen Rummage explains the Delivery process—how to equip students to deliver expository messages using the completed sermon, and to move from an understanding of speech communication principles to persuasive delivery.
theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Found the best book on expositional preaching! A Must Have!December 19, 2016theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Often books written by multiple authors (three in the case of Engaging Exposition) will feel somewhat disjointed and compartmentalized by the different authors. However, Engaging Exposition is a true exception to that as it flows naturally between the authors. It is very easy to read and understand, but at the same time, so practical and applicable. Engaging Exposition is written in three sections, each author taking one section. First is Discovery, written by Bill Curtis where he adeptly covers the Hermeneutics (or interpretation) of the Biblical text. Second, Daniel L. Akin covers Development of the message with excellent ideas and examples. Finally, Stephen Rummage competently covers the Delivery of the message, going into detail about vocalization, speech and many other very critical topics to engage with the hearers of the message.
The authors state at the beginning and at the end of the book that "Engaging exposition is not an option. It is an absolute necessity for the health of the body of Christ.". They really did an excellent job presenting their case in detail throughout this book
I really appreciated the first section part of this book, as the author, Bill Curtis, went over in-depth the Inductive Bible Study approach as it closely reflects many of the steps that we did in the Inductive Bible Study Classes we did at our church. The entire book is full of such valuable guidance, wisdom and practical advice from the aspect of studying and correctly interpreting God's Word, to crafting a sermon all the way to delivering that sermon in an effective manner. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that feels a calling to preach. This book will be referenced in my library for many years to come as I work on improving my preaching. In fact, after this review, I will be going through the book and start taking notes so I can start utilizing the approaches outlined in this book. Dare I say that Engaging Exposition is a "must have" for anyone interested in Expository preaching?... without question.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
John MichaelKentuckyAge: 35-44Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Engaging ExpositionApril 27, 2015John MichaelKentuckyAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Engaging Exposition was a required text for a seminary class on expository preaching. I was fortunate to have one its authors, Dr. Bill Curtis, as my instructor. This is one of the best books I have ever read on the subject of preaching. The authors cover the most important aspects of handling the biblical text, from interpretation and exegesis to effective communication and clear application. Above all, Akin, et. al. hold the Scriptures in highest regard and tacitly steer the reader away from some of the more popular, but shallower methods of preaching. Engaging Exposition will help a young preacher find "his voice" and will help the more seasoned minister strengthen his. The book is something of a synthesis of classical expository principles and methods and more contemporary communication techniques. There are a lot of books out there on this topic, but few match its excellence. Whether you are an experienced preacher like me, or more of a novice in the field of pulpit communication, I encourage you to read this book.
