Herschel Hobbs on Expository Preaching
“Early in my ministry I determined to major on expository preaching. To me this means to draw out of Scriptures their original meaning and then apply it to present needs. Expository preaching does not depend so much upon the length of the passage but upon how it is treated. It is possible to do this even with one word. Of course, I allow myself the freedom of using other types of sermons when it seems advisable. But for the most part I adhere to exposition.”
