A "USEFUL GUIDE" FOR PREACHERS AND FOR THOSE WHO TRAIN OTHERS TO PREACH!
"Rodney Wood has provided a very useful guide for pastors who want to interpret and preach the Bible responsibly. The processes he recommends are balanced, wise and practical. Your ministry will be blessed by this book." Richard Pratt, Ph.D. President, Third Millenium Ministries Adjunct Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary
". . . What almost all teachers of preaching - including equippers of Majority World preachers - find challenging is coming up with a few clear principles and practices and then offering examples that flesh them out. Rodney has done that in these pages; he has given us precept and example." Greg R. Scharf, D. Min. Professor of Pastoral Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL, author of Prepared to Preach, Relational Preaching, and, with John Stott, of The Challenge of Preaching.
"This material is undoubtedly a great tool in the formation of many other expository preachers, especially among those who do not have the opportunities to access this kind of sound biblical and theological literature on the subject of preaching." Elias Medeiros, D.Min., D.Miss., Ph.D. Harriet Barbour Professor of Missions, Reformed Theological Seminary, USA
"The preacher must be faithful to Scripture and clear to those who hear him. Action Steps for Expository Preachers addresses both of those areas in a thorough yet concise manner. . . . I have never seen material for training in sermon preparation in such a transferable and reproducible form." T. Preston Pearce, Ph.D. Theological Education Consultant, Europe International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention
"I thoroughly commend this book to any aspiring preacher or student of the Word. Having used it widely amongst pastors and evangelists in Tanzania we have found that it provides an excellent guide to engaging meaningfully with the text. If followed, the outcome is not just a sermon that is clear, relevant and faithful to the Biblical message, but also the spiritual transformation of the preacher and his congregation." Rev. Tony Swanson Coordinator of the Institute of Bible and Ministry African Inland Mission, Morogoro, Tanzania
