Choi, Young Shik, "A Study on Bible Study Group to Improve Expository Preaching Preparation: The Case of 701 Korean Church Bible Study Group" (2021). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 3343.
The rapid growth in number of Korean churches have led the period of quantitative revival. However, at same time, diverse problem emerged such as materialism and secularization. The main reason was due to the lack of spiritual growth of the church members. In this regard, expository preaching which provides clear understanding of the scripture and applications to live as healthy Christians is inevitable. Many preachers in the past have had interest in and tried expository preaching but they could not write down their script with elements of expository preaching due to the lack of understanding and training in this field. Additionally, they could not exceed their own ways of observing and studying because they were alone in this arena. This study suggests proper ways to understand and prepare expository preaching. This suggestion will be derived from analyzing regular gatherings of 701 Korean church for Bible studies and preparing expository preaching.
