"...there is no shortage of strategists and innovators in the evangelical community who think that they have better ways for reaching the culture than by preaching God's Word. Ben Awbrey knows better than that... I have long appreciated his desire to help other preachers make the most of their gifts and calling. His insights have proved invaluable to hundreds of pastors and young preachers."

John MacArthur, Chancellor Emeritus, The Master’s University and Seminary and Pastor–Teacher, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

"The three ‘undervalued' components of expository sermon preparation include introductions, illustrations and conclusions... In all of my considerable reading over a lifetime on biblical exposition, this excellent volume on ‘introductions' by Dr. Ben Awbrey proves to be the most thorough and complete that I have ever encountered."

Richard Mayhue, Research Professor of Theology Emeritus, The Master’s Seminary, Sun Valley, California
