Do you think there is an increase of expository preaching in American churches today?

Yes, I do. I would say there is a greater openness to expository preaching in the American church. I would also say that I am most encouraged by young men entering the ministry who are, right up front, settled that the faithful way to handle God’s Word is through biblical exposition. It makes me all the more encouraged for the days to come.

I’m grateful for the encouraging signs, but I pray for revival with the preaching of God’s Word all the more, as we are seeing an overt change in the culture away from biblical truth. We need to have more faithful preachers and faithful churches proclaiming the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
