Editorial Reviews

Christian Focus Website - Richard Mayhue
Dr. Jack Hughes engagingly presents the colorful words of Thomas Watson in the context of Biblical exposition. We twenty-first century preachers are indebted to the author for this grand study of a notable, historic herald. Thomas Watson compelled people to listen to him whether he was preaching or writing, by the vivid word pictures that he painted, both at his desk and in the pulpit. This rich study should be a treasure in every preacher's library. I highly recommend it.
Christian Focus Website - Warren W. Wiersbe
The author shows you how to use a sanctified imagination to bring meaningful "pictures" out of the text and into your sermons, without sacrificing biblical content or homiletical structure.
Christian Focus Website - John MacArthur
My passion is expository preaching, and that is the chief reason I am an admirer of the Puritans. The finest examples of Puritan exposition I know may be found in the sermons of Thomas Watson. Unbelievably rich, Watson's messages still communicate today with a power and clarity that is simply breathtaking. Jack Hughes has done a tremendous job of analyzing Watson's expository style, especially his use of potent word pictures. This book will be a valuable tool for any preacher.
Christian Focus Website - David Meredith
The motto of much evangelical preaching today seems to be "blessed are the bland". In a society dominated by multi-media presentations in full Technicolor Jack Hughes tells that there is no hiding place for the lazy preacher who is contented to preach in monochrome. The days of preaching with all the "fervour of a weather-forecaster" must surely be behind us!
