Preaching Expositionally Without Preaching Exhaustively

Peter Mead offers the following helpful points on how one can do an expositional study of a book and not cover every verse in the book.

Foundation – Know the message, flow and structure of the book.
1. Select key moments in the book.
2. Select key examples in the book.
3. Select an example in a sequence, but show the whole progression.
4. Select passages you want to preach.
5. Keep the big idea of the book clear throughout.

While I still have preference for verse-by-verse studies, this does offer a way to cover longer books without spending an inordinate time in a series. Read Peter's entire post here.
