Preach the Word: Essays on Expository Preaching is a collection of essays by well-respected practitioners in the field on the foundations, methods, and practices of expository preaching.
The essays cover many aspects of preaching. The first section considers the hermeneutical foundations for a pastor's encounter with the Bible—the personal encounter, taking place in the privacy of a pastor's study, which precedes and underlies the creation of any sermon. The second section offers paradigms for preachers and preaching, based on the example of historical giants in preaching, including Charles Simeon and others. In the third section, multiple essays examine the unique cultural challenges of preaching in the twenty-first century—challenges such as multiculturalism, declining biblical literacy, and increasing social, cultural, and technological complexity. The fourth and final section discusses the process of education for preachers, both in seminaries and in churches, and how these institutions can train and inspire the next generation of expository preachers.
Preach the Word is a collection created in honor of R. Kent Hughes, one of the most well-known evangelical and expository preachers in the United States. As a minister of the Gospel for more than forty years and a pastor at College Church in Wheaton, Illinois for twenty-five years, Hughes has been responsible for enormous contributions to the field of expository preaching. Preach the Word concludes with a warm and engaging biographical sketch of Hughes called "Disciplines of a Godly Pastor," which uses the example of Hughes' life, work, and preaching to instruct today's pastors.
Clearly outlining the theory, practice, and foundations of expository preaching, this title is certainly a valuable addition to the library of pastors—but also seminary professors, academic theologians, and any others who seek to train and nurture the gifts of preaching in a new generation of ministers.
