Preach: Theology Meets Practice

Mark DeverGreg Gilbert

$18.99

Paperback
Mark Dever, senior pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, and president of 9Marks, is widely respected for his efforts to build biblically faithful churches in America that will impact the nations. In this book about one of the practical distinctives of that work, Dever and his former student Greg Gilbert offer a theological and practical guide emphasizing the centrality of expositional preaching -- sermons intentionally rooted in a specific Bible text.

Dever and Gilbert clearly explain how God exercises His divine power through the Word, making it the basis of any relationship we have with Him. Thus, preaching directly from Scripture should be at the center of church life. Toward that goal, the authors give practical advice on how pastors can decide what texts to preach on, how to prepare and outline their sermons, and how to deliver and review those presentations.

Pastors will especially appreciate the book's final section: transcripts of past sermons from Dever and Gilbert augmented by insightful conversations between them about how each sermon was planned and whether or not is was effectively implemented.

Simple but essential
5 stars By Andrew, Oct 21 2013
Dever and Gilbert set out to make 1 very simple point about the value and importance of expository preaching. They lay out a simple argument to convince the reader that expository preaching ought to be the primary method for preaching God's Word and give some simple tools to assist a preacher in doing so. In our pragmatic, consumer driven church culture, they challenge us to place the Word of God back in its rightful place as the centrepiece of our Sunday service.

Basic Introduction to Preaching.
3 stars By David N., Sep 09 2013
A very basic introduction to preaching. You could finish it in a couple days. It isn't seminary quality, nevertheless, it is a good foundation to read before studying preaching. Covers such topics as: what is preaching, why expository preaching, using illustrations, how to do captivating introductions, and how to receive criticism. A great starter for anyone with little time, but a desire to serve God at a higher standard.
