David Jackman is the ideal person to write a book like this. David has been preaching and training preachers longer than many of us have been alive. He is a terrific encourager of preachers and his insights, observations and exhortations will provide great stimulus for your own thinking.


After graduating from Cambridge university, David Jackman worked for six years with the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship, followed by theological studies at Trinity College, Bristol and fifteen years of ministry at Above Bar Church, Southampton. In 1991 he became the founder–director of the Cornhill Training Course in London, a ministry of the Proclamation Trust, with whom he served for eighteen years, latterly as its President. His active “retirement” sees him involved in preaching, training and writing ministries and enjoying family time with his wife, Heather, and their four grandchildren.

About David Jackman

David Jackman is the past President of the Proclamation Trust and the founder–director of its Cornhill Training Course. Its aim is to train and equip a new generation of Biblical preachers, which he still actively pursues in retirement, through his own preaching, writing, leading workshops and producing training materials. Previously he was the minister of Above Bar Church, Southampton.



… not just a book to be read once but a resource to dip in to time and time again for encouragement and correction. Perhaps best of all I found in myself a fresh vision and enthusiasm for preaching ministry as I was reminded of the ultimate purpose of preaching, which is to present people mature in Christ.

Mike Neville, Vicar, St Simon Zelotes, London

This is vintage Jackman! Here is a wealth of perceptive Biblical and pastoral advice and encouragement to preachers. It includes helpful reminders of the need for expository preaching, and also clarifying warnings of some of the traps that expository preachers fall into.
