Preachers of God’s Word need encouragement and inspiration along the way. Respected author and preacher Warren Wiersbe utilizes 50 years of experience to crystallize the unchanging principles of preaching.

With his usual clear style and common sense, Wiersbe answers the questions, “What good is preaching?” and “What is good preaching?” He draws from the examples of classic preachers and urges readers to speak to their listeners’ present and personal situations.

In concise, readable chapters Wiersbe reviews topics ranging from what a preacher is, to how to choose sermon themes. He provides practical suggestions for how to be understood, while inciting preachers’ imagination to deeper creativity.

Top Highlights

“Preaching is important because God has ordained preaching!” (Page 14)

“The preaching of the Word means dispensing God’s medicine to the spiritually sick. ‘He sent forth his word and healed them’ (Ps. 107:20).” (Page 17)

“‘but I came to see that it was in studying the Word that I was to get faith.’3 If our study of the Bible doesn’t increase our own faith, then our preaching of the Bible isn’t likely to generate faith in anybody else. Not only must we believe in preaching, but we must also believe in what we preach. ‘Have faith in God’ (Mark 11:22).” (Page 27)

“You and I don’t know when we’ll preach our last sermon or when a worshiper will hear his or her last sermon, so we’d better examine what we do in the light of eternity. Jonathan Edwards frequently asked himself, ‘How much shall I value this upon my deathbed?’” (Page 51)

“The authority of the message comes from the Word and not from the approval of people” (Page 25)

Few people know preaching as well as Warren Wiersbe. . . . In this brief volume Wiersbe goes back to the basics in a book that will be enjoyed by both novice preachers and experienced preachers. . . . Wiersbe’s volume touches on topics that will not be new to readers, but he addresses them in a fresh and enjoyable manner that will encourage the most veteran preacher. At the same time, this book will be a tremendous guide to the younger preacher who is seeking to become more firmly established in his calling and craft.
