Praise for the Print Edition

The Supremacy of God in Preaching reminds preachers of what we easily forget to our peril and the peril of the people in our care.

Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga distinguished professor of preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

Calls us back to a biblical standard for preaching, a standard exemplified by many of the pulpit giants of the past, especially Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon.

John Piper passionately and prophetically calls all preachers to make God supreme over any method and in every message.
