"Few, if any, have so positively influenced the work of preaching in recent memory as did Haddon Robinson, whose Biblical Preaching is a classic that has been and still is studied in countless colleges and seminaries. This volume is a tribute to Haddon in that his students and colleagues further develop his insights on the context of the preaching task. Anyone who preaches or teaches the Word of God will be blessed and encouraged by this outstanding volume."
--Michael Duduit, executive editor, Preaching magazine; Clamp Divinity School, Anderson University
"Gibson and his coauthors accurately capture the many-faceted contributions Haddon has made in the field of homiletics. Each author explores some essential part of Haddon's philosophy of preaching and brings the reader concrete help in forming and delivering sermons relevant to today's world. I highly recommend this book to preachers everywhere. Haddon's legacy is in good hands."
--Alice Mathews, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author of Preaching That Speaks to Women
"Gibson's erudition, practical experience, and wisdom hand us a volume for our times. He has selected a top-tier panel of interpreters to help the reader navigate the crosscurrents that push and pull the contemporary proclaimer. Preaching has always been a complex task, and that challenge only escalates. This contribution gives a homiletical GPS for those who ride the pulpit in stormy weather."
--Joel C. Gregory, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University
"Here is a book on preaching that is different from most books on preaching. Effective preaching means living in the worlds of the Bible, contemporary culture, our hearers, and ourselves. When these intersect, the preacher is most effective. This is a welcome and insightful volume that will enhance your preaching and enrich your ministry."
--David L. Allen, Center for Expository Preaching, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
