Throughout church history, preachers who have left a lasting impact on the church have known that, in the words of Michael Horton, "the regular proclamation of Christ through the close exposition of Scripture is more relevant in creating a worshiping and serving community than political causes, moral crusades and entertaining services. In many evangelical churches, however, the centrality of biblical exposition is being demoted to second-class status. In a strange twist, the preaching of the Cross is now foolishness, not only to the world, but also to the contemporary church. The result has been a famine of biblical preaching in our land.
