D. A. Carson on expository preaching

Paul Lamey over at Expository Thoughts summarizes D. A. Carson on Expository Preaching from a 1996 issue of Leadership Journal…

Don’t abandon expository preaching:

  1. It is the method least likely to stray from Scripture.
  2. It teaches people how to read their Bibles.
  3. It gives confidence to the preacher and authorizes the sermon.
  4. It meets the need for relevance without letting the clamor for relevance dictate the message.
  5. It forces the preacher to handle the tough questions.
  6. It enables the preacher to expound systematically the whole counsel of God.
