“I define expository preaching as that form of proclamation which, in reliance upon the Holy Spirit, arises from and is delivered through a study of the grammatical, syntactical, literary, historical, contextual, theological and cultural elements of a given biblical text and seeks to convey the abiding and authoritative principles that are inherent in that text and were primary in the original author’s intention in such a way that the enduring relevance of the Scriptures are made plain for the contemporary listener.” (Embracing Authority, pp.166-167)
