Stephen Olford and David Olford, both widely respected preachers in their own right, define “expository preaching” as preaching that exposes Scripture instead of imposing upon it. In Anointed Expository Preaching, the authors teach its technique and equip and encourage preachers of all kinds to respect their calling and minister God’s inerrant Word. The Olford’s methodology of preaching makes this a deeply spiritual and intensely practical book, offering specific instructions to help preachers write, review, and rehearse their sermons, exposing the eternal truths of Scripture and clarifying the themes of their message. They are the authors of The Secret of Soul Winning in the Evangelism Collection (11 volumes)
A veritable encyclopedia for preachers and their preaching. It is filled with practical, pointed, and pertinent guidelines that are clothed in seasoned counsel.
—Charles C. Ryrie, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology, Dallas Theological Seminary
If you are serious about preaching, study the masters in Anointed Expository Preaching.
—Paige Paterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas
Stephen Olford (1918-2004) was the founder of Olford Ministries International and the Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching. He was raised in Angola to missionary parents and after receiving ministry training was appointed an Army Scripture Reader during World War Two. After the war, he was involved in extensive evangelistic and preaching ministries throughout Britain and overseas. He and his family moved to Tennessee in 1985 to develop a training center that would equip and encourage preachers and teachers of God’s Word. As an ordained Baptist minister and a conservative evangelical, Olford ministered across many denominational, cultural, and racial lines. His books, sermons, and sermon outlines are available from Logos on the Olford Expository Preaching CD.
David Olford serves as Stephen Olford Professor of Expository Preaching and as Assistant to the President at Union University in Tennessee. He serves as Chairman of the Board and President of Olford Ministries International. As both teacher and preacher, David has shared his passion of God’s Word across the United States and in numerous foreign countries.
