Famine in the Land - Steven J. Lawson. Nonetheless, Steve Lawson says, there is a spiritual famine in the land. A dearth of biblical preaching has left the evangelical movement weak, starving for spiritual truth, and susceptible to the ravages of the enemy.

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.

"The most urgent need in the Christian Church today is true preaching; and as it is the greatest and most urgent need in the Church, it is the greatest need of the world also." So said Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the famous expositor of Westminster Chapel. And so begins this book, a passionate call for a fresh generation of preachers from Steve Lawson, who is himself a gifted expositor of the Word.

With the conviction that a preacher is meant to become a mouthpiece for the text of Scripture, this book wonderfully models expository preaching, even as it teaches it. Chapter One, "Feast or Famine? The Priority of Biblical Preaching," is an exposition of Acts 2:42-47, which unfolds the primacy, pattern, purity, passion, and potency of the apostolic teaching in the early church. Chapter Two, "The Need of the Hour: The Power of Biblical Preaching," expounds Jonah 3. It is a rousing study of "of one man (Jonah), equipped with one message (God's), committed to one method (preaching), who effected great spiritual change" (p. 58). The author examines the call to preach, along with the character and consequences of true preaching, highlighting its courageous, compelling, confrontational, and compassionate dimensions, as seen in the life of Jonah.

Chapter Three, "Bring the Book! The Pattern of Biblical Preaching," is a study based on Ezra 7:1-10 and Nehemiah 8:1-18. This chapter unfolds the preacher's preparation of the word in study, his personalization of the word in obedience, and his proclamation of the word in preaching. Finally, in Chapter Four, "No Higher Calling: The Passion of Biblical Preaching," an exposition of 1 Timothy 4:13-16 is given. This chapter includes a brief look at Calvin and his "Reformation of Exposition" (p. 110-112), in the course of Lawson's unfolding of the pursuit, pattern, perseverance, pains, and preoccupation of biblical preaching.

The author's contagious love for the Word, extensive study of preaching itself (dozens of excellent quotations on preaching are sprinkled throughout the book), and obvious zest for homiletics and the artistry of preaching make this an exciting and encouraging book for preachers which will serve to stoke the fire in many a discouraged preacher's heart. I greatly enjoyed it and recommend it to other pastors and preachers.

This book is a must have for every preacher, in all places, for all times. Steven Lawson has emerged as a pastor that is known for one thing: Passionate Expository Preaching. This book I was expecting to be a mirror of Dr. Lawson's message at the Shepherd's Conference titled, "Bring the Book." But what I found was that this book was an expansion of that sermon and not one could replace the other. I did enjoy the book more, I believe, because I heard Lawson's sermon on the topic first, as I could hear the passion that Lawson preached while reading his words.

The book exposits The Priority, Power, Pattern and Passion of Biblical preaching. Lawson accomplishes this through the story of Jonah, Ezra, Paul and Timothy focusing on the passages in the book of Jonah, Ezra 7:10, Nehemiah 8:1-8 and 1 Timothy 4:13-16. Lawson is very clear and I don' t know if it was because I did hear his sermon but it seemed as though the admonishing and exhorting teachings were leaping from the pages to my mind in how I could change the way I teach and preach. This book along with the sermon, "Bring the Book," should be given to every preacher whether seasoned or new to the ministry.

Pastor Lawson is as clear in writing as in preaching. This book is a brief view of the state of preaching today and the remedies that must be taken in order to deal with the problems the church are facing. With a lot of references, we can go deeper on the study of the matter that is crucial for the church nowadays. It is a must read for those who are worried about how the church is, as well as the kind of preaching that we have from pastors these days. Great book!

Excellent discussion on the need to return to biblical exposition at Christian pulpits in response to the 'hunger' for the Word of God in todays' churches.

Dr. Lawson is a gifted preacher and author, and this book hits the nail on the head. In a day of spineless pulpits in America (not all, thankfully, but far too many), Lawson gives the remedy - preach the word. More than any ten thousand other things we need, we need men of God to be just that -MEN of God that preach and live the scriptures without apology. The American church has been psychologized, contextualized, and Madison Avenued into oblivion without much impact on the surrounding world. Yes, there are exceptions, but they are getting to be fewer and fewer. Lawson has shown the path that God will honor - the systematic, expository preaching of His word. Thank you, Dr. Lawson for an encouraging and edifying read.

Ever wonder why the sermons you hear don't last long in your mind or actions? This book will answer that question but will you take any action on it is another question!!
The book was pretty good. I needed it for school and enjoyed reading it. It was an easy read. Good choice.
