This is Robinson's highly revered "how to" preaching textbook. He presents a ten-step process of sermon preparation in his typically precise style. No word is wasted. In many respects numerous other books on preaching are building on this one, trying to offer some clarification or slight adjustment. That is certainly not true of all, but of many.

The emphasis throughout is on preaching a thoroughly Biblical message, through effective communication, in a way that is entirely relevant to the specific contemporary audience. The "Big Idea" is central to the philosophy and the procedure of preaching. So the ten steps move from understanding the text to the point of an accurate and clearly defined exegetical idea, through the process of developing the homiletical idea with clear purpose, to the practical matters of sermon shape and effective content. Although there are other books that deal in detail with issues of delivery, Robinson's brief section on delivery is helpfully succinct.

I think it is fair to say that anyone interested in the subject of preaching should have this book. Robinson's combination of Biblical commitment, expertise in communication theory, and renown as a teacher of preaching, effectively blend to make this a very effective book. The 2nd Edition contains some significant improvements on the original.

I've read a few books on preaching now, this was the first that made the process of constructing a listenable sermon a task within my possibility. The 10 steps that Robinson suggests are sensible ways of building a central theme, documenting some of the ways that this can then be used in relating biblical truth in a way that is relevent and engaging to a contemporary congregation. The book is not the ultimate 'how to' for preaching, but blends some good advice with a desire to express the 'why' behind preaching the Christian faith.
I really enjoy the book, and will be hoping to blend his advice into my preaching preperation in the months to come.

This is an excellent book for any man who is interested in preaching the word of God accurately to the church. The simple structure that Robinson brings to the reader is easy to understand and a wonderful method of sermon preparation and communication.
