Overview

The purpose of this research was to perform a content analysis on fifty-two of James Montgomery Boice's sermons in order to determine if his expository form was consistent in selected genres of Scripture. Thus, the research question of this dissertation was: Did the preaching of James Montgomery Boice exhibit a common expository sermon form in different genres of Scripture? Boice's sermons were analyzed using an analysis tool developed from the expository preaching theory of Stephen and David Olford. After analyzing fifty-two sermons according to the analysis tool, the researcher determined that Boice's preaching did not consistently meet all of the criteria for an expository sermon as established by Stephen and David Olford. However, the research revealed distinctive expository characteristics in Boice's sermons. First, Boice's sermons demonstrated how an expositor should study a text and deliver a sermon for historical, contextual, and doctrinal accuracy. Predominantly, in the first two sermons of a Bible book, Boice presented multiple details that were related to the historical, cultural, and social setting. Boice's preaching demonstrated a healthy model of contextual accuracy, as his sermons were tied to the immediate context, to the respective book of the Bible, and to the Bible as a whole. Additionally, Boice's sermons modeled doctrinal preaching since his sermons were filled with doctrinal content both specifically and implicitly. Second, Boice's preaching modeled how to structure a sermon. Boice consistently expressed a dominating theme in each of his sermons. Since Boice focused on one dominating theme, the integrating thoughts reflected the subject at hand and enabled Boice to present to the audience a motivating thrust that was related to the dominating theme. The dominating theme also caused the sermon to be unified. Third, Boice's expository preaching form demonstrated consistencies in the substance of the text. He faithfully introduced the dominating theme in the introductions, expressed pertinent background information, and shared the importance of the sermon for the listener. Boice's sermons also faithfully contained the necessary elements that made them expository within their particular genre. Finally, in the conclusion of Boice's sermons, he moved the expository sermon from a general explanation of truths to a personal level and presented an invitation to the audience.
