Praise For The Christ-Centered Expositor: A Field Guide for Word-Driven Disciple Makers

“Merida, with the heart of a pastor and the skill of a teacher, proves a great guide for preachers, both aspiring and seasoned. Here is a book that is succinct, pastoral, informative, and challenging.”
-Steve Timmis, executive director, Acts 29 Network 

“During my doctoral studies in expositional, Christ-centered preaching, I literally read dozens of books on the subject from scholars and practitioners, past and present. Tony Merida’s Faithful Preaching was hands-down my favorite. And now this expanded and revised version is even better! The Christ-Centered Expositor is a must-read for every preacher.” 
-Matt Carter, pastor of preaching and vision, The Austin Stone Community Church

“Tony Merida has a reputation across the country for the weightiness of his ministry and the power of his proclamation. This book will show you why the reputation is deserved and will help you build a ministry rooted in the person and work of Jesus.”
