Encountering God through Expository Preaching walks preachers of all levels of experience through the steps necessary to preach with power. The authors bring years of preaching and teaching experience to bear on the essential topics of the preacher’s character, exegetical skills, and homiletical techniques. In addition, readers will learn to rely on the Holy Spirit in preaching so that the preacher can say to his audience, “Come and encounter God with me in this text of Scripture.” As the preacher encounters God in preaching, he will preach with spiritual power and see lives changed and churches strengthened.
