Six Reasons To Do Expository Preaching

Six reasons to do expository preaching:

  1. It is the method least likely to stray from Scripture.
  2. It teaches people how to read their Bibles.
  3. It gives confidence to the preacher and authorizes the sermon.
  4. It meets the need for relevance without letting the clamor for relevance dictate the message.
  5. It forces the preacher to handle the tough questions.
  6. It enables the preacher to expound systematically the whole counsel of God.

(D.A. Carson, “Teaching the Whole Bible” from The Art & Craft of Biblical Preaching).
