Overview


Steven Lawson understands how important it is to feed God's people from
His Word. He is concerned that what started as a genuine attempt to attract a broader hearing by moving away from Scripture, has grown into a crisis in the church. He is convinced that we must return to expository preaching, "the man of God opening the Word of God and expounding its truths so that the voice of God may be heard,
the glory of God seen, and the will of God obeyed." Lawson calls the church back to Scripture-to restore its commitment to let God's own words speak.

Throughout church history, preachers who have left a lasting impact on the church have known that, in the words of Michael Horton, "the regular proclamation of Christ through the close exposition of Scripture is more relevant in creating a worshiping and serving community than political causes, moral crusades and entertaining services. In many evangelical churches, however, the centrality of biblical exposition is being demoted to second-class status. In a strange twist, the preaching of the
Cross is now foolishness, not only to the world, but also to the contemporary church.
The result has been a famine of biblical preaching in our land.
