Expository Preaching Resources

Powerful Expository Preaching Series, by Ray Stedman

Part 1: The Glory of Preaching

Part 2: Preparation of Expository Sermons

Part 3: The Accountability of the Preacher

Ray delivered these talks at the first Congress on the Bible, held in 1982 in San Diego. I've transcribed them (with virtually no editing) from PBC tapes; RealAudio files are available on the PBC site. Invaluable advice from one of the best expository preachers.

In these talks Ray recommends two books on expository preaching: Preaching and Preachers by Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Between Two Worlds: The Art of Preaching in the Twentieth Century by John Stott (originally entitled I Believe in Preaching). To these two fine books I would add my recommendation for John Piper's The Supremacy of God in Preaching. Order any of these through Amazon by clicking on the link.

I also highly recommend John Piper's Mullins Lectures on Preaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, September 14 to 16, 1999. Two of his three talks are available as RealAudio files at the SBTS website: "Why Does Preaching Have Such a Prominent Place in Worship" and "A Zeal That Accords with Knowledge."

Inspiring quotes on preaching.

Worship Resources

Expository Easter Sermons, links to more than 70 Easter, Good Friday, and Maundy Thursday messages by Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, Martin Luther, Ray Stedman, and others.

A Good Friday order of service

John Newton's poem In Evil Long I Took Delight

John Donne's poem Good Friday, 1613: Riding Westward; these two poems are especially effective in Good Friday services.

Unusual Christmas Carols and Hymns.

A sample Christmas Eve program.

Recommended Christmas Stories (with excerpts), for children and adults.

George Macdonald's classic Christmas story The Gifts of the Child Christ, in its entirety.

A Responsive Prayer for the Christmas Season

John Piper's Advent Poems. Piper composes four poems each Advent season, and reads them during services. Most are biblical stories, expanded and set to verse. More than 70 are now available. These are moving poems, biblically sound and theologically deep. "The Innkeeper" is my favorite. This poem is also available in book form, and makes an attractive gift.

Expository Christmas Sermons: Links to more than 50 sermons by Charles Spurgeon, Ray Stedman, John Piper, John MacArthur, and others.

An Hour of Prayer: A suggested outline to use when praying for an hour, first written for use in a 24-hour New Year's prayer vigil.
