Item description for It's All in How You Tell It: Preaching First-Person Expository Messages by Haddon W. Robinson & Torrey W. Robinson...

"It's All in How You Tell It" provides the tools and insights necessary to help both veteran and novice preachers move from ineffective habits into adrenaline-pumping, dramatic sermon delivery. The authors examine such issues as studying a text for a first-person approach, determining how to portray biblical characters, and more.

Publishers Description
Pastors are continually looking for resources to make their preaching more powerful and culturally relevant. Old-school models based on three-point outlines do not resonate with today's churchgoers, who are accustomed to media-driven modes of expression.
It's All in How You Tell It provides the tools and insights necessary to help both veteran and novice preachers move from ineffective habits into adrenaline-pumping, dramatic sermon delivery. They will learn to preach by retelling a scriptural account from the vantage point of a biblical character-combining the power of drama with God's Word. Nationally known preaching expert Haddon W. Robinson and his son, Torrey, examine issues such as exegeting a text for a first-person approach, structuring a narrative sermon, determining how to portray biblical characters, and staging and delivering the sermon itself.
With this book seminary and Bible college students have the opportunity to build foundations for engaging, story-filled preaching ministries. The end result will be more preachers who "love to tell the story" and more church members who are hungry to hear it.

Reviews - What do customers think about It's All in How You Tell It: Preaching First-Person Expository Messages?

Very practical and might change your preaching, forever  Mar 30, 2007
Dr. Robinson's "Biblical Preaching" has been a standard for more than 20 years and has been extensively used in seminaries and Bible colleges. I read it too for my homiletics class (and still have it). It explains the preparation and preaching of the traditional "three point sermon with introduction and conclusion." I was pretty good at it but eventually it got boring.

Thus I started checking into other methods and found this one, written by Dr. Robinson with his son Torrey. These authors still advocate expository preaching, but in a creative way: Biblical characters telling the stories from their point of view.

The book is great for a number of reasons. It is very practical, explaining everything from preparation to delivery. It encourages you to study the text and the cultural setting so that you can "milk" these for vivid, explanatory details that will greatly inrich your story. It includes a couple of sample sermons, so that I was able to envision what these sermons look like.

Once I tried it at church, people loved it so much, they applaud any time I do it (don't ask me why). Some people remember sermons I did more than two years ago. Others tell me this form makes the Biblical characters come to life or that they are transported into Biblical times.

I don't think that it might have been their intention, but I have actually abandoned the "three point sermon" advocated by Dr. Robinson in his "Biblical Preaching" and moved more into Fred Craddock's narrative preaching style. Credit (or blame) this book that has introduced me to preaching as story telling rather than the declaration of propositional truth.
Helpful, Practical Guidance  Oct 22, 2003
For preachers committed to biblical exposition yet still eager to provide a creative element to their preaching, the Robinsons offer helpful insights and some effective models. This is a worthwhile investment for the preacher seeking to add new energy to expository sermons.
