This primer on preaching, Preaching? Simple Teaching on Simply Preaching, is one of the best there is, displaying the work of a master who knows his subject so well he can make it look 'simpler' than it is, and therefore less daunting.

D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois

Given the content, readability and insights... this book is a "must" for preachers and for those who want to understand preaching and encourage preachers.

Harry L. Reeder, Senior Pastor and Teacher, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

This refreshing guide, laced with excellent Biblical examples and astute observations from personal experience, will be a great read for preachers old and new, and I warmly commend it.

Jonathan Lamb, Keswick Ministries, CEO and minister-at-large

Alec Motyer has had a profound, formative influence on my preaching. In this book he puts his decades of wisdom on expository preaching at the reader's fingertips. This is as practical and Biblically solid a book on preaching as you can find today.

Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City, New York

Alec's succinct and stirring treatise on preaching makes me wish wholeheartedly that I could start all over again-in that blessed privilege of preaching, praying and pastoring.

Dale Ralph Davis, Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina


Like many things in life, the skill of good preaching is 95% perspiration and 5% inspiration. Alec Motyer's guide is based on a multitude of sermons over many years of preaching in many different situations, a recipe to help you know your subject and to pull the pieces together into a winning sermon. Preaching is a privilege: let Alec help you reach out and make the best of the gifts God has given you.

... ought to be read by all preachers and prospective preachers and teachers alike... educational, engaging and encouraging.

English Churchman

This is an excellent book. Those who have recently started to preach should read it as soon as possible; it will help them avoid foolish mistakes and a lot of wasted time. Those who have been preaching for some time should also read it- while there is still time to do it better!

Evangelical Times

... written with the twinkly wisdom of a true veteran. This is a practical and inspiring look at the subject of preaching... thought-provoking and challenging.

Ichithus Magazine

I find it hard to imagine a more exciting book on preaching. It's the distilled wisdom of a veteran Old Testament scholar, full of wisdom and great outlines on scripture. It's ideal for both regular preachers and those just starting out. It's one of those books that will spawn sermon series in the reader's mind.

Mark McDowell

Alec Motyer is a man of the Bible... The book is very helpful to both the novice as well as the veteran preacher. I highly recommend the book.
