Product Description

Is your congregation starving?

There's a spiritual famine in the land—a shortage of faithful preaching leaving those in the pews dangerously undernourished.

We need people today who will preach like the prophets and apostles did, proclaiming the word of God with courage and conviction. Famine in the Land, a compilation and adaptation of four powerful journal articles by Steven Lawson, makes a biblically-grounded argument for the desperate importance of expository preaching.

Whether you preach to 3,000 or 30 this book will embolden you to:

  • revere the glorious, painful, historical call of preaching
  • dig deep in your study of God's word
  • speak and live with uncompromising conviction

This is an indispensable resource for any church leader who wants to see lives changed through preaching.

This gifted preacher has written a book that will challenge any preacher, encourage a return to genuine exposition, and motivate Christians to settle for nothing less than true biblical preaching.  This book is nothing less than a theological tonic for the times.
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The downward slope of preaching in America is leaving followers of Jesus undernourished in an increasingly challenging day!  If the Word of God is the true food of our souls and the light to our paths, then a return to the relevant exposition from the pulpit is desperately needed.
-Joseph M. Stowell, Moody Bible Institute

I wholeheartedly concur that there is a famine in the land, as Steven Lawson passionately argues.  I also believe with all my heart that the single most important resolution to this precedented contemporary thirst and hunger is to be found in Famine in the Land.  Therefore, I commend this work as another needed aid in bringing a new reformation and revival in our times.
-Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

With evident passion, and expositional precision, my good friend Steven Lawson has given us a fresh treatment of a timeless subject for an ever-present need in the pulpits of our land.  Every pastor must read this book if he intends to "Preach the Word."
-Stephen F. Olford, The Stephen Olford Center for Biblical Preaching
