Reviews

This publication that contextualizes expository preaching in the African context is innovative and exciting. The principles and techniques for effective biblical proclamation through orality, as espoused by Dr. Ezekiel Ajibade, deserve to be considered and applied to advance the Great Commission, to grow the church, and to expand the kingdom of God. I am glad to recommend and commend it to enrich contemporary homiletical scholarship and practice worldwide.Emiola Nihinlola, PhDPresident, The Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, OgbomosoChair, Association for Christian Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA)Every preacher preaching in an African context will benefit from this excellent work. Indeed, there is much to be learned here for any preacher in any context!David L. Allen, PhDDistinguished Professor of Preaching, George W. Truett Chair of Ministry Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas, USAI recommend this book for pastors, theological educators, and all who love preaching God's word in such a manner that results in salvation and transformation.Zephaniah Victor Madziakapita, PhDRegional Director for Africa, International Orality NetworkDr. Ezekiel Ajibade explores African orality as a resource for developing expository preaching that will be biblical and relevant to an African audience. This book is a ground-breaking undertaking in homiletical study and praxis which will stimulate future research. I endorse the book and commend it to seminarians and preachers who are seeking for authentic Christian preaching in Africa. Very Rev. Sunday Ola. Onadipe, DMinBishop, Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of BadagryFormer Rector, Methodist Theological Institute, Sagamu, Ogun State, NigeriaIn Africa, as in most parts of the world, oral cultures are influential in shaping people's identity, values, and preferred forms of learning and communication. This book is a thorough treatment of that neglected topic in relationship to preaching. Expository Preaching in Africa is a well-researched, well-argued, and practical exploration of the nature of expository preaching and how to contextualize preaching for an African (and thus oral) context.Grant Lovejoy, PhDDirector of Orality Strategies, International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention, USAThis is a very important and needed contribution to the field of homiletics. This well-researched study embraces both the apostolic mandate for the faithful proclamation of biblical truth and the need for such truth to be communicated clearly and relevantly. Dr. Ezekiel Ajibade's work is driven by a love for faithful expository preaching and also the desire to see such preaching meaningfully and appropriately engage the cultural context he addresses. For those involved in Great Commission work, and those who seek to preach the word outside of their own four walls, there is much to learn from this volume.David Olford, PhDPresident, Olford Ministries International, Inc., USAPreaching in any context is extremely essential if one wants the audience to understand what God has prepared the preacher to deliver. This book is a product of dedicated efforts of the author to stress the importance and necessity for preachers to engage in the exposition of God's word. I am so excited to recommend this book to pastors ministering among students and to the general audience - it is deep in research and thorough in its practical approach.Ademola Ishola, PhDFormer General Secretary, Nigerian Baptist Convention
