Exegesis and Expository Preaching

"An expository sermon rises and falls on exegesis. Exegesis involves a thorough, analytical study of a biblical passage in order to develop a useful interpretation of the passage. Before we can preach any passage, we need to thoroughly understand it; exegesis is the process by which we determine the meaning.”

Paul D. Wegner, Using Old Testament Hebrew in Preaching: A Guide for Students and Pastors (Grand Rapids: Kregel, 2009), 68–9.

Where will you be publishing the review?

Charles: I'll post it on my blog as soon as I am finished. It's a short book and an easy read, so it probably won't be much longer.
