D.A. Carson on Expository Preaching

The Gospel Coalition has reposted a brief piece from 1996 by D.A. Carson on ‘6 Reasons Not to Abandon Expository Preaching’. Here they are:

1. It is the method least likely to stray from Scripture.
2. It teaches people how to read their Bibles.
3. It gives confidence to the preacher and authorizes the sermon.
4. It meets the need for relevance without letting the clamor for relevance dictate the message.
5. It forces the preacher to handle the tough questions.
6. It enables the preacher to expound systematically the whole counsel of God.

See here for a brief expansion of each of the points.
