"Haddon Robinson has influenced generations of students and preachers through his widely used classic text, Biblical Preaching, in which he shows preachers how to communicate the Bible's big ideas with precision. But does Robinson's "big-idea" approach to expository preaching still work in today's diverse cultures and tast-paced world?

The Big Idea of Biblical Preaching presents a strong defense of the ongoing relevance of this approach to expository preaching. An experienced and skilled group ot contributors to this volume includes:

Paul Borden    Donald R. Sunukjian
Scott M. Gibson    Joseph M. Stowell III
Duane Litfin    Bruce K. Waltke
Terry Mattingly    Scott Wenig
John Reed    Keith Willhite
Bruce L. Shelley    

This volume is written not only for the current generation ot students but also for today's preachers, who will find in the pages of this book a powerful approach to expository preaching."
