Expository Preaching is “the communication of a biblical concept derived from and transmitted through a historical-grammatical and literary study of a passage in its context, which the Holy Spirit first applies to the personality and experience of the preacher then through him to hearers”, Haddon Robinson, Biblical Preaching.

Rev. Richard, ordained Minister of the Four Square Gospel Church of Malaysia
The author expounded passages from the New Testament comprehensively as any Bible scholar would. His presented the meaning and intent of a biblical text, providing commentary and examples to make the passage clear and understandable. He expounded the meaning of the passages clearly on a verse-by-verse basis. His studies on the grammar, context, and historical setting of a particular passage make this book worth reading. He analyed the text carefully, objectively, interpret, and makes application to the contemporary setting. From here the reader will be able to craft a sermon out of his meticulous work. I am very much encouraged to see how difficult passages can be made understandable and simple. I recommend this book to those seeking to learn about expository preaching.
