This book is a great defense of expositional preaching. Even though times change our call as preachers does not. We are called to preach God's word to our generation because it is God's word alone that has the power to save us and to sanctify us. We cannot afford to substitute biblical exposition with moralistic addresses from the Bible, and we certainly cannot afford to give up preaching altogether. God specifically calls us to verbally preach his word. This is Dr. Mohler's basic argument, and I would urge all of us preachers to follow him in this dedication.

Review 2 for He is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World - eBook
In his ten chapter book supposedly written about preaching to postmoderns Albert Mohler does not even address his own thesis until the eighth chapter. And when he does he uses completely closed minded tactics to unpack Postmodernisms worldview. I do not agree with all of postmodernism but I do not reject it completely either. Mohler does. And not only does he do this, but he does it before he even totally understands what it is he rejects. If you want a book on solid preaching this is a 2 out of 10. If you want a book on Postmodernism and preaching this is clearly a 1 out of ten. I do not recomend it as a reader, student, preacher, aspiring theologian, and Christian. Sorry folks but there is no room for blind, closed minded rejections on my bookshelf.

Review 3 for He is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World - eBook
Mohler has written a very good book defending and exhorting the pratice of expository preaching. Clear and compelling argument for the nature and necessity of Bible-based exposition. This book is certainly written from a preacher-friendly position. It will challenge the way we look at what we call worship and how we preach in our churches today and how we should preach in times to come.
