"The Bible is what God has made. Sermons are what we make with what God has made." This is the foundation for developing expository messages, according to Ramesh Richard. His method has been field-tested in training seminars for thousands of preachers around the world. Richard's book is a simple do-it-yourself resource for developing and preaching expository sermons. It guides the reader through a seven -step process, with many practical suggestions and illustrative charts along the way. In addition, there are eleven appendixes that include information on: how to choose a text; preaching narratives; understanding your audience; and forms of sermon introduction. A comprehensive sermon evaluation questionnaire is included as well. This book is an updated and expanded version of Scripture Sculpture, is ideal for beginning preachers, lay preachers without formal training, or any pastor who is looking for a refresher course in expository sermon preparation.

Review 1 for Preparing Expository Sermons: A Seven-Step Method for Biblical Preaching
Date:March 27, 2009
Richard does an excellent job explaining the process of expository sermon preparation. Having read Haddon Robinson's "Biblical Preaching" it is obvious Richard was a former student of Robinson. I recommend this book on the fact that it is concise and provides ample support for building sermons while reading through the book. A must have for any student that preaches expository sermons or has a desire to learn how.

Review 2 for Preparing Expository Sermons: A Seven-Step Method for Biblical Preaching
Date:November 8, 2005
This book was so helpful to me. I preach as a lay preacher, and so Ramesh Richard's method that moves from understanding the bible to helping others understand it is the perfect book for someone in my position. I even took notes from the book, and they come out each time I prepare my next sermon!
