Book Review of “Saving Eutychus”

July 20, 2013

Saving Eutychus
©2013 Matthias Media
Written by Gary Millar & Phil Campbell
169 pages

Some of the better books I have read in recent years have come from Matthias Media, which has its roots in Australia. This book, written by a Northern Irishman and an Aussie, is one of the best. I highly recommend it to pastors and preachers everywhere.

The aim of this book (p. 26) is to help preachers of the Word to be faithful to Scripture without being dull. They believe that the key to this is to make the text obvious, helping the listeners to see it and feel it, thus understanding it. They believe expository preaching best accomplishes this (as do I). True expository preaching happens when the message of the text is the message of the sermon (p. 31).

Many of us have experienced boring expository preaching. Millar & Campbell offer good advice on how not to be guilty of this crime.
