Sure. I have a broader definition of expository preaching than some. I define it as Word-driven preaching. It’s saying what God has said in His Word, and declaring what God has done in His Son, and applying that message to the hearts of people.

My chapter on the extent question, “The Extent of the Atonement: Limited or Universal?”, which was published in 2010 in Whosoever Will: a Biblical-Theological Critique of Calvinism, became….

Interview with Gary Yates, co-author of The Message of the Twelve

We recently featured The Message of the Twelve by Gary Yates and Al Fuhr, Jr. as our Book of the Week. Gary was kind enough to answer some interview questions, some of them clarifying questions I raised in my feature of their book, such as what they mean by “inspired editors” and what a canonical reading of the Twelve might look like….
