Over the years, author, editor, mentor, and pastor R. Kent Hughes has shared the gospel with thousands of men, women, and children all over the world. His legacy of expository preaching, now celebrated in this volume, is a precious heritage that will benefit preachers for years to come. In Preach the Word, fifteen of Hughes's friends and colleagues, including J. I. Packer, Wayne Grudem, John MacArthur, and D. A. Carson, examine what it means to be an expository preacher. They study subjects such as biblical and historical perspective, hermeneutical principles and practices, contemporary challenges, and training and example. Through this book, one man's passion to preach the Word faithfully will spread to readers, motivating and equipping them to do the same.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preach the Word: Essays on Expository Preaching: In Honor of R. Kent Hughes?

Makes you want to be a better preacher  Mar 26, 2008
R. Kent Hughes has faithfully heralded the Scriptures for over four decades. As a result, fifteen of Hughes' friends and colleagues from across the globe, including J.I. Packer, Wayne Grudem, John MacArthur, Peter Jensen and D.A. Carson, got together and contributed essays on expository preaching to honor the Word of God and encourage men to continue to faithfully herald the text, week in and week out. As a pastor, I am very thankful for Preach the Word.

The contributors hit on a myriad of themes and topics. This becomes a strength and a weakness of the book. It is a strength because of the diversity of topics covered and a weakness in the sense that there is sometimes a lack of development or continuity.

Some of the chapters and themes include, interprative principles, biblical and historcal paradigms, comtemporary aims and challenges to expository preaching, the priority of training (both through the local church and through seminaries).

Some of my favorite essays were D.A. Carson's chapter on challenges for the 21st Century Pulpit. It is what we have come to expect from Carson, biblical, practical and motivating. In addition, Leland Ryken's essay on the Bible as Literature made me think and has caused me to be more careful in my handling of the various genres. MacArthur's chapter entitled, "Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth" was outstanding. It was very practical and therefore helpful.

The essay's also reached back to the past to highlight faithful men who have been heralding long before our day. Wallace Benn highlighted the ministry of Richard Baxter and J.I. Packer used Charles Simeon as a model for preaching.

Overall this is a flat out encouraging book for preachers or those who enjoy preaching. I really think it should be on every preaching pastor's bookshelf to serve as an instructive shot in the arm on a regular basis.
Do You Love Good Expository Preaching?  Feb 26, 2008
A fitting tribute to an exemplary life in the service of the Lord. From cover to cover, this book wraps the reader in sermons that lay bare the mysteries of God's Word.

You'll love it!
