Every preacher, at some point in their ministry, will experience a sense that despite all their efforts and preparations during the week, no one is listening on Sunday morning, only receiving blanks stares from the people of the congregation. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can learn to preach in a way that will be readily, even eagerly, received by your congregation.
It’s all here: what inductive preaching is, how it works, why it’s effective, who’s used it—including Jesus, Peter, Paul, Augustine, St. Francis, Wesley, Edwards, and Moody, to name only a few.
