Dr. Bryan Chapell is pastor of the historic Grace Presbyterian Church, President Emeritus of Covenant Theological Seminary, and a faculty member of both national and international seminaries. He is an internationally renowned preacher, teacher, and speaker, and the author of many books, including Unlimited Grace, Each for the Other, Holiness by Grace, Praying Backwards, The Gospel According to Daniel, The Hardest Sermons You’ll Ever Have to Preach, Christ-centered Worship, and Christ-Centered Preaching, a preaching textbook now in multiple editions and many languages that has established him as one of this generation’s foremost teachers of homiletics. Dr. Chapell is passionate about sharing the truth and power of God's grace in his expository messages and in his pastoral training, since the grace of the gospel is the ultimate motivation and enablement for transformed lives of holiness and joy.
"Dr. Chapell is not only a highly effective homiletician, he is also a tremendous practitioner. He not only teaches preaching effectively, he can preach with tremendous effect! Once again, I am grateful for how this work has blessed my teaching ministry for nearly 25 years. I shudder to think what kind of homiletic pilgrimage I would have had if this book was not available to me almost a quarter of a century ago. "
"The mentoring Dr. Chapell has provided [me] has influenced my leadership more than any other homiletical seminar or principle I have ever experienced and has left its mark on our church. I am convinced that redemptive Christ-centered preaching is the greatest need in our churches today as we together serve the gospel and build the kingdom of God in our various contexts. "
"Dr. Bryan Chapell has provided a solid yet contemporary approach to expository preaching, something that is much needed in today's congregations. I share with him the belief that contemporary congregations are open to expository preaching models provided they are done well and with an emphasis on practical application. Chapell offers exactly such a model, and I recommend it with enthusiasm. In fact, I plan to use this material when I teach expository preaching."
"I am favorably impressed. "
"Chapell is a thoughtful, balanced, and helpful guide to what expository preaching. . . can be, and needs to be again. Any seminarian or preacher, however long in the ministry, can profit. "
"Christ is the message of preachers, and Dr. Bryan Chapell's teaching will enable preachers to lift him up in ways that will change lives. "
"Whether you're just starting out in Bible college or have been in the pulpit for many years, this seminal content. . . can help you grow in your preaching ministry. I know that my teaching and preaching ministry would not exist without the help of
Bryan Chapell. "
