The Art& Craft of Biblical Preaching: A Comprehensive Resource for Today's Communicators
All Preachers Should Have This!
I'm getting my Doctor of Ministry degree in preaching, and so I've read lots of books about giving sermons through the years. This is one of the best. Dozens of scholars have written articles divided up into different categories (style, delivery, preparation, application, illustration, introductions, conclusions). Timothy Warren has several articles defending the topical expository sermon. He is ...
Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon
While this book is biased towords expository preaching it is a great asset for reviewing one's preaching style and methods and for lining up good preaching with good exegesis!
Fred B Craddock
An Outstanding Resource!
Fred Craddock has provided a timeless resource to current and future preachers. Not only that, this book is valuable to anyone looking for a clear and productive method for biblical studies. "Preaching" should be read with two other resources close at hand: a Bible and a book or recordings of an exceptional preacher/sermon crafter. For me, that was Debbie Blue's Sensual Orthodoxy. Knowing that ...
Supremacy of God in Preaching, The
Great Book for Budding Expositors from a Master Expositor...
John Piper's book The Supremacy of God in Preaching is broken into 2 main sections. The first section lays the foundation of why God should be supreme in preaching, and this section argues that true God glorifying preaching should have The Glory of God as the goal, the cross of Christ as the ground, and the power of the Holy Spirit as the Gift. Also, he finished up the first section calling his ...

Exhaustive, but not exhausting - a great book!
Donald Sunukjian studied under Haddon Robinson at Dallas Seminary, then also taught there. He now teaches at Talbot Seminary in LA. Sunukjian has an ability to think through elements of preaching in minute detail, yet has a communication style that is clear and accessible - both in person and in his writing. These qualities have combined to make this a great book. This is definitely another ...

Preaching Without Notes
Joseph M. Webb
I found this book to be very helpful, if not a bit liberating. While the ongoing working example he gives of the preparation process is more of an inductive sermon, the principle of structuring the sermon as a series of logical connected "chunks" of communication (rather than as a hierarchical outline with three alliterated main points) is adaptable to exegetical sermons, as well. When ...
Preaching on Your Feet: Connecting God and The Audience in the Preachable Moment
Fred R. Lybrand
Preaching Truth from the Heart - to the Heart
I picked up this book at the last conference. Being a methodical type theologian, I had always memorized my sermons. After reading this book, I changed my presentation - but not my exacting exegesis. The response of the congregation has been impressive. The expressive dynamic of "realtime" interaction connected with them just as Fred explained. It could be compared to listening to a sermon on ...
Preaching to a Postmodern World: A Guide to Reaching Twenty-first Century Listeners
Useful guide to modern preaching
This is a very helpful book for all preachers regardless of denomination. The chapter about the postmodern way of thinking was most enlightning and answered a lot of questions one might have about young people's way of looking upon the world of today. I only wish I had read it earlier in my career.
Preaching Christ from the Old Testament: A Contemporary Hermeneutical Method
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
An Important Book for Future Ministers and Teachers
One of the greatest challenges that we the ministers and theological teachers of today have is showing to students and parishioners now and toward the future the importance of the Old Testament. For far too long the Old Testament has been considered a huge mess for the casual Christian Bible student. Even I myself had a hard time, before taking the Old Testament seminary courses, reading and ...

Alyce McKenzie's latest book provides some outstanding and accessible practices from novel writers that I am certain will shape my preaching in positive ways in the weeks ahead.

Preaching & Preachers
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Great insight for anyone that prepares sermons or messages
I found this book to be a great help for myself as a layperson who prepares sermons for a jail ministry. A great insight and practical know-how on sermon preparation and also how to prepare the man himself. Most of what goes on today in the church would not pass the bar in his view and he gives solid reasons for his position. Time well spent in reading this book, a must for all in the ministry or ...
360-Degree Leadership: Preaching to Transform Congregations
Michael J. Quicke
This Preacher Understands Leadership
Michael Quicke has been criticized for writing a book on leadership because he is first and foremost a preacher, but this project demonstrates a clear understanding of the relationship between preaching and leadership that should exist. Preaching is touted as the primary tool for the application of any plan for congregational mobilization. Certainly many pastors recognize the pulpit as a place of ...
The Practice of Preaching: Revised Edition
Paul S. Wilson
Day-by-day sermon schedule
The best feature of Wilson's book is the section in which he provides helpful tools and exercises for each day in a weekly process of sermon composition. Beware of reading a chapter a day as you go through the process, as the last "day" in the process encompasses the final five chapters of the book! Beginning preachers see also Haddon Robinson's Biblical Preaching and Michael Duduit's Handbook ...

The first lady Preacher whose imagination seizes mine!
There is never any doubt for ten years since I first heard this lady Teacher-Preacher, this one-of-a-kind, Barbara Brown Taylor has sustained my interest! After hearing her first in Lectionary Homiletics Conference in-between Joanna Adams and Fred Craddock, I recall taking a risk to ask her to autograph one of her books. She proved to be a gracious listener. After exchanging E-mails about our ...
