“Jason Meyer offers a sterling contribution to the practice of expository preaching—not only affirming its historic benefits, but also helping us see how to interpret each aspect of Scripture in light of the development of the Bible’s whole message. Expository preaching can get lost in microscopic examination of a particular passage. Meyer keeps the redemptive context in view, not only providing many ‘aha’ moments for experienced expositors, but also giving a new generation of preachers even more incentive to expound the Word in a manner true to the text.”
—Bryan Chapell, President Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary; Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois
“My friend Jason Meyer has a firm grasp not only on the theology of preaching, but also on the theology we’re called to preach. He is gripped by the Christ-centered plotline of the Bible and understands something that desperately needs to be recovered in our day if the church is ever going to experience the kind of reformation many of us long for: the preacher is not called to say many different things—but rather the same thing over and over, in many different ways, from every different text.”
—Tullian Tchividjian, Founder, LIBERATE; author, One-Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World
“Jason Meyer’s work cuts a new swath in the plethora of books on preaching. Meyer grounds his view of preaching in biblical theology, showing that the proclamation of God’s Word fits within the story line of Scripture. The reader will find wisdom on a multitude of other topics, such as the nature of expository preaching and the role topical preaching should play in the pulpit. The book breathes out a passion for God and a joy in Jesus Christ, so that the weight and gladness of preaching pulsate throughout the work.”
—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Here Jason Meyer takes us on a sure-footed journey through the whole of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, unfolding for us what the entire Bible reveals about preaching. The result is a luminous, deeply grounded biblical theology for the ministry of the Word, and a winsome, compelling apologetic for expository preaching! Preaching: A Biblical Theology is a very important book that will be read and discussed by serious-minded Christians far and wide.”
—R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
“Going . . . going . . . gone. Jason Meyer hits it out of the park.”
—C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky
