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.
“There is no greater need in the church today than faithful, effective expository preaching. Engaging Exposition is an outstanding volume that will equip pastors with the tools they need to be authentic expositors of God’s Word. From the critical task of interpretation to the moment of delivery, Engaging Exposition walks the reader through the process of crafting and presenting biblical messages that will connect with twenty-first century congregations. It deserves a place on any preacher’s bookshelf.”—Michael Duduit, Executive Editor, Preaching magazine, Dean, College of Christian Studies, Anderson University
