This is a very useful book exploring the nature and basis of expository preaching. It is part of a wider series entitled 'Get Preaching', developed by the Proclamation Trust to promote sound biblical exposition. In three short chapters Jackman explores the motivation and method of expository preaching along with the use of preaching throughout the Bible. Contrasting it with other methods he speaks of expository preaching as putting“…the Bible firmly in the driving seat, at the wheel.” In addition to discussion of the practice, the author includes two worked examples of how he prepared different texts for preaching and the notes of a sermon in an appendix. A further appendix reprints another pastor’s article on 'Expositional Imposters' which unfortunately, all too many of us will recognise. It will make a good read for those looking to start preaching and for those preaching already who may need reminded from time to time of the basics of good exposition.
