(Ukrainian) Expositional Preaching - Int’l Edition


What makes for good preaching?

In this accessible volume—written for preachers and preachers in training—pastor David Helm outlines what must be believed and accomplished to become a faithful expositor of God’s Word. In addition to offering practical, step-by-step guidance for preachers, this short book will equip all of us to recognize good preaching when we hear it.


Ukraine is a key state, a spiritual bridge between east and west, Orthodox and Catholic. Kyiv was where Slavic Christianity was born 1,000 years ago. Ukraine has a strong Christian heritage, but suffering under Communism was severe. Evangelical Christians have emerged stronger and more numerous from 130 years of unrelenting persecution in which millions of Christians were killed. Most evangelical denominations are growing rapidly, hampered only by an inability to erect buildings and train leaders. Good, spiritual, theological training is a great need. 

Many have benefited from theological education since 1989, but with many more churches beginning or waiting for pastors, the need is as urgent as ever. 

Resources are the greatest challenge to Christian educators - the lack of trained teachers is overshadowed by the lack of textbooks, facilities and funding for the students themselves. (Operation World, pg. 645-6 and CD)
