According to Dr. James W. Bryant:

"Very few books on preaching contain material on God's call to preach. . . .[Sound Biblical Preaching] is written in simple enough language that a pastor could unreservedly give it to a teenager who surrenders to preach. . . .[it]would be a good supplementary textbook for a class in expository preaching. . . .[it] would be a source of help for a professor planning his lectures for a class on expository preaching, and the author's outline would present a good structure for a semester of classroom lectures."
