Text-Driven Preaching features essays by Daniel L. Akin, Paige Patterson, David Alan Black, Jerry Vines, Hershael York, David L. Allen, Bill Bennett, Ned L. Matthews, Robert Vogel, and Jim Shaddix urging pastors to commit to presenting true expository preaching from the pulpit. Concerned over what some church leaders even consider to be expository preaching today, they agree, "This book rests firm on the biblical and theological foundation for exposition: God has spoken." Capturing the urgency and spirit of these writings in the book's preface, co-editor Allen notes, "The church today is anemic spiritually for many reasons, but one of the major reasons has to be the loss of biblical content in so much of contemporary preaching. Pop psychology substitutes for the Word of God...in the headlong rush to be relevant, People magazine and popular television shows have replaced Scripture as sermonic resources."
