Is a preaching-centered ministry truly useful in today’s society? Alexander argues through this booklet that biblical, expository preaching is as central to any church’s activity as Scripture is to its life, and explains why a focus on such preaching is more important than ever.
Divided into eight main sections, this helpful resource deals with such subjects as the characteristics of expository preaching, its urgency in the church today, and the need for it to be pastoral, clear, and relevant.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
"When seminary students ask me to name contemporary expositors whose preaching is most worthy of emulation, Eric Alexander's name always comes instantly to mind. He is one of the finest biblical preachers I have ever listened to—never straying from his text, always giving proper weight to each point in the passage, and passionately, persuasively driving home the truth of God's Word with incredible power but seemingly effortless delivery. His insights on preaching are pure gold, and this booklet is a real treasure."
