Praise for the Second Edition

Named One of the Twenty-Five Most Influential Preaching Books of the Past Twenty-Five Years by Preaching

"This book stands apart from all the others in terms of recognition by those who study preaching. . . . [An] outstanding introduction to the task of preparing and presenting biblical sermons. Robinson's 'Big Idea' preaching has shaped the thinking of thousands of expository preachers and been the major influence on many of those who teach preaching in today's classrooms. More than any other book of the past quarter century, Biblical Preaching has profoundly influenced a generation of evangelical preachers."

"Robinson's book is an excellent primer, the one I recommend and use. . . . Robinson has thought himself clear on the mysterious process of birthing a sermon. Novices can cut their eyeteeth on this book, and seasoned preachers will see in black and white what they have done intuitively for years. The ten methodical stages with their examples and exercises make the art of preaching accessible."
--Jeffrey Arthurs, Journal of the Evangelical Homiletics Society

"The definitive textbook on contemporary expository preaching. . . . Robinson's famous question 'What's the Big Idea?' has become the fundamental issue for thousands of preachers in their effort to understand the primary intention of a given text for contemporary audiences. Exercises at the end of each chapter enhance the practicality of the book. . . . An essential primer on preaching the Word of God faithfully and powerfully in these times."

"Biblical Preaching brims with homiletic wisdom from a master of the art. . . . Whether a preacher is a neophyte or a seasoned veteran, this homiletical handbook rewards its readers thirty- and sixty- or even a hundredfold."
--Clergy Journal
