Expositor Magazine, the print magazine of OnePassion Ministries and the preaching and teaching ministry of Dr. Steven J. Lawson, is a publication through which we desire to address the historical, biblical, and theological dynamics and practice of expository preaching. In addition, Expositor serves pastors, preachers, students, teachers, and laymen by examining historical and current issues related to biblical exposition.
We live in a day in which there is a famine in the land for the hearing of God’s Word. In response to this spiritual drought, this ministry and magazine is devoted to calling those who stand in pulpits to the high standard of biblical preaching. If we are to see a new reformation in this day, there must, first, be a reformation of the pulpit.
