Many in ministry see preaching and church leadership as separate responsibilities. “Most writing on Christian leadership omits preaching, and most books on preaching leave out leadership,” observes Michael Quicke. But effective Christian ministry requires preachers to rediscover leadership through preaching. By adapting a workable and realistic leadership model, Quicke shows how preaching is the main vehicle for leading congregational change.
With 360-Degree Preaching, veteran preacher Michael Quicke brings expository preaching to a postmodern world. As someone who preaches every Sunday, he has witnessed the transforming power of preaching first hand for over thirty years. As he teaches students and pastors the art of preaching, his goal is to encourage preachers and those who train to be preachers.

Praise for the Print Edition
[Quicke] challenges a popular metaphor for preaching, suggests a better alternative, and encourages preachers. The result is a book that takes seriously the challenges of preaching in the 21st century but faces them with a hopefulness rooted in God's character and activity.
