Two pretty good posts on preaching.

The first by Don Carson highlights the benefits of expository preaching:

  1. It is the method least likely to stray from Scripture.
  2. It teaches people how to read their Bibles.
  3. It gives confidence to the preacher and authorizes the sermon.
  4. It meets the need for relevance without letting the clamor for relevance dictate the message.
  5. It forces the preacher to handle the tough questions.
  6. It enables the preacher to expound systematically the whole counsel of God.

The second by Michael Kruger proffers preaching in a way that will reach our postmodern world:

  1. Preaching is Word-Centered (in a world that is people-centered).
  2. Preaching is Authoritative (in a world that is anti-authority).
  3. Preaching is Proclamation (in a world that wants ‘dialogue’).
  4. Preaching is Corporate (in a world that prefers individualism).
