Specifically, Mohler presses the need for men of God to preach expository sermons. He states emphatically, "I believe that the only form of authentic Christian preaching is expository preaching."
Mohler argues rightly that every sermon should be grounded in Scripture, rooted in the Reformation, and wielded with authority. Indeed, every sermon should be Christological. Spurgeon's wisdom is cited with approval: "Preach the Word, place it in its canonical context, and make a bee-line to the cross."
The author addresses the current postmodern climate and hostility toward metanarratives. He maintains that pastors must link their sermons to the great movements of biblical history: creation, fall, redemption, and consummation: "Our ambition, our obsession as preachers - should be nothing less than to preach so that the congregation sees the big story of the gospel, the grand narrative of the gospel, through every text we preach."
Pastors who are not convinced about the mandate to preach expository sermons should not waste their time with this book. Continue to tell stories and chat about Christianity from the safe confines of a stool. The net result of this kind of "wee little preaching" as Mohler calls it, will be a weakened church that will bear the fruit of an anemic and lifeless Christianity.
Pastors who take the responsibility to shepherd the people of God with blood-earnestness should carefully read He Is Not Silent. You will be encouraged and motivated to preach the Word of God with the passion and faithfulness.
(Andrew Rothlisberger, missionary, Bucaramanga, Colombia).
"Every pastor is called to be a theologian...The health of the church depends upon its pastors functioning as faithful theologians..."
In an age where Evangelical's are caving to post-modernism, pastor's must love the Word of God and not shy away from preaching it faithfully. This necessarily entails being a theologian. I recommend Dr. Mohler's book whole heartedly.
