Wrapping up the Preaching?: Simple Teaching on Simply Preaching Blog Tour – We’ve been enjoying the reviews coming in this week for Alec Motyer’s new preaching book. Here are a few highlights from the blog tour:

“I warmly commend this book to preachers, especially young preachers with little experience. Motyer illustrates his approach by giving several examples of how to exegete a passage and turn it into a sermon.  By opening up his process to new preachers, Motyer gives them a gift. Those who follow his method will be brought into an encounter with the Spirit in the text. May all who declare God’s Word do so with such loving attention!”

Rating: 5 Stars

“This simple but engaging book is practical theology at its best, a book rooted in the Word, exalting the Gospel and relying on the Holy Spirit to assist the preacher or teacher as they prepare and preach the Word. I recommend this book for both young and seasoned preachers, especially those who are preparing in seminary to preach the Word of God.”
