Welcome to The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.
In this episode of the podcast, I have the joy of talking preaching with Eric C. Redmond. Redmond is a Teaching-Pastor at Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Park (IL), an associate professor at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, and the general editor of the new book on preaching, entitled, Say It! Celebrating Expository Preaching in the African American Tradition.
There is a wonderful heritage of faithful preaching in the Black church. That great heritage is carried on by a great cloud of contemporary witnesses. In Say It!, Redmond features the writing and preaching of some of the strong preachers of this generation, including Charlie Dates, Romell Williams, K. Edwards Copeland, George Parks, Eric Mason, Paul Felix, and Windred Neely.
During our conversation, Redmond and I talk preaching, pulpit heroes, and his new book Say It! Enjoy!

“Biblical exposition is strikingly dynamic when coupled with the African American preaching tradition. Charlie Dates, Rommel Williams, George Parks, Jr., Terry D. Streeter alongside a cast of pastors and preaching professors collaborate to demonstrate the power of exposition in the cradle of the Black pulpit. This powerful resource celebrates the faithful, biblical preaching of African Americans that has often been overlooked since it differs from the style common to white preachers. The contributors in this volume provide examples of African American Biblical exposition from every section of the Old Testament and New Testament, and explain how to preach from narrative, poetical, prophetic, epistolary, and apocalyptic genres throughout the Scriptures. Appropriate for training associate ministers or use as a textbook in homiletics, Say It! will give the preacher what is needed to craft powerful expository preaching that speaks to real life.” – Eric C. Redmond
