Item Description...
Preaching Professor Greg Heisler believes that the resurgence in expository preaching will not be complete until the role of the Holy Spirit receives the same emphasis as the text of Scripture. Without that balance, exposition will lack freshness and sustenance. Spirit-Led Preaching moves the role of the Holy Spirit from simply working behind the scenes in sermon preparation, to the forefront where His role can be more clearly understood and depended upon.

Publishers Description
In the words of author Greg Heisler, ""Spirit-Led Preaching "is a call issued to preachers, pastors, and teachers of homiletics to recover the Holy Spirit for expository preaching in the same way we have recovered the biblical text. . . . My plan for doing this is to recover the doctrine of pneumatology ("the study of spiritual beings/phenomena") for our theology of preaching, resulting in a renewed emphasis on the powerful combination of Word and Spirit working together as the catalyst for powerful expository preaching."Heisler thoroughly examines how the Holy Spirit illuminates and empowers the preacher, opens the hearts of the hearers, and applies the message to their lives. Indeed, to ignore the Holy Spirit's role in sermon preparation and delivery would be a considerable oversight.

Essential work on the Spirit's Role in Preaching   Mar 17, 2007
I was pleasantly surprised that I picked up this book a couple of weeks ago at a local bookstore. This is an excellent primer on the role of the Holy Spirit in preaching. Heisler reminds us that most seminaries today focus almost solely on training students to be good expositors of the biblical text but neglects to mention the all-important role of the Spirit's illumination, empowerment, and character-building of the preacher. He tells us the goal of preaching is not to preach a good message but the goal should be Christological witness and life-transformation (Spirit-filled obedient living). In terms of delivery, Heisler advocates the "incarnational" approach to sermons, where the preacher "incarnates" the very message he/ she is to preach. Rather than relying solely on notes or a manuscript, the preacher speaks from the life-lessons learned from the Spirit's work in his/her life.

Here are the chapters of this book:

Introduction What Spirit-Empowered Preaching Looks Like

Chapter 1 Missing in Action: Where is the Holy Spirit When We Preach?

Chapter 2 What is Spirit-Led Preaching?

Chapter 3 The Biblical Foundation for Spirit-Led Preaching: Paul, the Prophets, and Jesus

Chapter 4 Recovering the Doctrine of Illumination for Spirit-Led Preaching

Chapter 5 Word and Spirit Together: The Theological Foundation for Spirit-Led Expository Preaching

Chapter 6 The Spirit and the Preacher's Sanctification

Chapter 7 The Spirit and the Sermon's Preparation

Chapter 8 The Spirit and the Sermon's Presentation

Chapter 9 The Holy Spirit and the Anointing: Understanding the Spirit's Empowerment for Preaching

All the chapters were excellent; I really enjoyed and benefitted from the chapters that talked about the Word and Spirit working together, the Spirit's role in illumination, and the Spirit's role in the sanctification of the preacher.

This is an excellent supplement to Haddon Robinson's Biblical Preaching. It is very clear, concise, and helpful in addressing a very neglected aspect in expository Bible preaching. The goal of expository Bible preaching should not be just to give a good message but to transform the hearers to be good witnesses for Christ and obedient, Spirit-filled disciples. It is essential reading for those who wish to be used by the Spirit to preach God's Word. Highly recommended!!
