Preach the Word: Essays on Expository Preaching: In Honor of R. Kent HughesBy: J. I. Packer, John MacArthur
For more than forty years, pastor R. Kent Hughes has shared the gospel with thousands of people and raised the standard of expository preaching in North America and beyond. To celebrate his legacy and pay tribute to his years of ministry, fifteen of Hughesâs friends and colleagues from across the globe, including J. I. Packer, Wayne Grudem, John MacArthur, Peter Jensen, and D. A. Carson, examine what it means to be an expository preacher. Among the contributors are professors, a university chaplain, a college president, and urban church plantersâliving testimonies to Hughesâs wide influence. These contributors address an array of themes for the ministry-minded, such as interpretive principles and practices, biblical and historical paradigms, expository preachingâs contemporary aims and challenges, and the priority of trainingâall in the expectation that this one manâs passion to preach the Word faithfully will enhance the understanding and practice of expository preaching in churches and seminaries around the world.
