Making a Difference in Preaching offers a collection of Haddon Robinson’s shorter writings on preaching, providing a helpful understanding of his preaching theory, method, and practice, and illuminating the key differences between good preaching and poor preaching. Here the reader can compare and contrast Robinson’s perspective of the preacher as theologian and evangelist. The section entitled The Preacher and the People consists of chapters urging the preacher to think intentionally about the people to whom he or she preaches. Each chapter contains discussion/reflection questions and a list of books for further reading. The book is well-suited for pastors looking for refreshing insights into their preaching, as well as seminary students or lay speakers.
