Building on the Baker best-seller Biblical Preaching by Haddon Robinson, which has sold over 150,000 copies, editors Keith Willhite and Scott M. Gibson offer The Big Idea of Biblical Preaching to new or seasoned preachers, seminarians, and lay speakers. Robinson's approach to preaching through developing a single idea into an expository sermon continues to hold true, even in today's diverse culture and changing congregations. Connecting individuals to biblical truths in a cogent, coherent manner is the main goal of preaching. Preachers grow sharper in their homiletic abilities as they become better equipped with the tools and methods that teach them how to deliver biblical messages that connect with people. The Big Idea of Biblical Preaching includes contributions from authors representing several major seminaries. Contributors include Duane Litfin, John Reed, Bruce Shelley, Joseph M. Stowell III, Bruce K. Waltke, Paul Borden, Terry Mattingly, Donald Sunukjian, and Scott Wenig. The authors provide an update to Robinson's methodology and defend its continued practice. End-of-chapter questions, suggested readings, and a tribute to Haddon Robinson are included.
Building on Haddon Robinson's paradigm for biblical preaching, this volume presents a contemporary defense for this approach to biblical preaching even in diverse cultures.
