The art of preaching is one of the most important acts of ministry. The sermon teaches, challenges and convicts. This handbook will serve as an invaluable resource helping the pastor, minister and preacher prepare and deliver effective sermons. The Handbook of Contemporary Preaching is perhaps the most encyclopedic text on preaching in any language. Michael Duduit has compiled the finest counsel from many of the acknowledged grand masters of the contemporary pulpit, including Calvin Miller, Joel Gregory, Stuart Briscoe, James Cox, Elizabeth Achtemeier, Thomas Long, James Earl Massey and many more.
Well conceived and artfully executed, this book brings together a collection of experts on preaching that tops anything published in decades.
