“David Helm has written the most helpful, concise, and useful book on expository preaching I have ever read.”
—Matt Chandler, lead pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; president, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; author, The Mingling of Souls and The Explicit Gospel
“If I were teaching a preaching class and could assign the students only one book, this might be the one. It’s a rare find that both introduces a topic to the novice and instructs the experienced. David’s humility convicts, rebukes, instructs, and encourages me as a preacher. I pray it will do the same for you.”
—Mark Dever, pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; president, 9Marks
"This little book is simply outstanding. It’s the best short book on preaching I’ve read. Helm’s advice is unfailingly wise, theologically informed, and extremely practical."
—Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, North Carolina
“David Helm’s skills as a preacher and his vast experience as a teacher of preachers make anything he says on this subject of great value. But I read him with greatest appreciation for what is most clear among his commitments: ‘Staying on the line, never rising above the text of Scripture to say more than it said and never falling beneath the text by lessening its force or fullness.’ Here is not merely skill and wisdom, but also faithfulness from which the truest treasures of preaching come.”
—Bryan Chapell, President Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary; Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois
“Helm has given us a finely wrought and utterly compelling brief on what needs to be understood and done in order to faithfully preach the Word. This is an important book.”
—R. Kent Hughes, visiting professor of practical theology, Westminster Theological Seminary
“In this compact book, David Helm distills key principles and insights that have encouraged many at the Charles Simeon Trust preaching workshops. I have seen men reengage with the hard work of preaching preparation as David has taught this material. May that same result be multiplied by this book.”
—Paul Rees, Senior Pastor, Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh, Scotland
“I love to see people’s shocked responses when they learn that expository preaching is the first of the ‘9 Marks of a Healthy Church.’ This priority is affirmed and explained in Expositional Preaching. David Helm issues a stirring challenge to get the message clear and right. May God be pleased to use this book to help you preach faithfully for the health of the church and the glory of God!”
—H. B. Charles Jr., Pastor, Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Florida

9 Marks, as always, helpful, word centered and glory of God focused, for the good of His precious church!
Helm provides great encouragement and practical tips to ensure the expositor handles the Word rightly, leaving the reader motivated to study God's Word thoroughly paying careful intention The the Authors main purpose for writing.
this book is an excellent starting point on the journey of faithful ministry of God's Word.
Helm shared much about Charles Simeon, a pastor in Cambridge England, and how his duty as a pastor was to stay duty bound to the text, never rising above what it says and never falling below what it says. He listed Simeon's goals in preaching; to humble the sinner, to exalt the Savior, and to promote holiness.
This little book was easy reading, and reaffirmed what I have always believed on expository preaching. Helm says it in a refreshing way. I have read many books on preaching, and this one will be a book I will be referring to often. I appreciated the chapter on questions. Every preacher needs to ask these questions in preparing and delivering the message. Helm made much emphasis on prayer. The whole process, preparation, delivery and results all need to be bathed in prayer. Thank you for making this little book available.
