Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice
by Ted Kyle
It would be more accurate to describe Brother Kirksey as the collector and synthesizer, rather than author, of Sound Biblical Preaching—for he has indeed brought together a wide-ranging collection of wisdom on the subject of expository preaching from many great preachers, past and present.
Most appropriately in a discussion of biblical preaching, the Bible itself is the source of much of the accumulated wisdom stored here. Other sources tapped range from J. C. Ryle and C. H. Spurgeon of an earlier century, to Donald Grey Barnhouse, W. A. Criswell, Michael Duduit, Raymond V. Edman, Vance Havner, R. G. Lee, Erwin Lutzer, Charles R. Swindoll, and Warren W. Wiersbe—among many other preacher/authors.
The material is organized under three major headings: Accepting God's Call to Preach, Affirming God's Call to Preach, and Apprehending God's Call to Preach.
Sound Biblical Preaching has received a number of endorsements, including this one from James W. Bryant, vice president for academic affairs at Criswell College: "Frank Kirksey has written one of the most practical new books on preaching I have seen."
