How do we approach with godly wisdom the task of being a pastor-teacher in Christ's church? We must preach the word; but if we take seriously the New Testament injunctions about how we address this primary task, we will show our wisdom by humility, a teachable spirit, and diligence in pursuing all profitable means to present ourselves approved and unashamed workmen of God (2 Tim 2:15). Many questions face us. How do you introduce biblical exposition where it has been previously unknown? How do you plan an effective preaching programme? What distinguishes truly biblical ministry from merely bible-based' ministry? Do we properly understand and relate to the real people that make up our congregations, both personally and theologically? This book gives practical help in these areas for those seeking to develop authentic biblical expository ministry. Each contributor is totally committed to this priority, and each writes from the perspective of biblical reflection and real experience in local church ministry. Only the already-perfect pastor has nothing to learn from its pages!"
