Shortly before his martyrdom for Christ, the apostle Paul wrote to pastor Timothy: "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching" (2 Timothy 4:2).
Pastors and teachers in churches have a high calling and great responsibility to communicate truths from the Bible, which is the very Word of God (1 Peter 4:11), and to do so accurately (2 Timothy 2:15) and faithfully (1 Corinthians 4:1-2). But how is this to be done practically and effectively when it comes to pastoral ministry?
The book PRINCIPLES ON PREACHING is written for shepherds and teachers of God's Word who desire to grow and improve in this crucial area of ministry to God's flock.
In PRINCIPLES ON PREACHING, Dennis Rokser shares 15 principles on expository preaching drawn from the epistle of 2 Peter and learned by God's grace through decades of pastoral ministry as a Bible expositor in the local church. These important principles can also help you as a pastor or teacher to fulfill your calling to "Preach the Word!"
