McDill helps preachers discover how to make the maximum impact on their congregation from the pulpit, how to reach out to them with love and authority, and even how to fine tune the sermon “on the fly.” Using the unique method he has taught for over twenty years, McDill presents detailed steps for understanding how to read an audience by studying their faces and body language, how to respond to their subtle reactions, and get the sermon’s message across with power and confidence. His simple, yet specific techniques will help any preacher cultivate a dynamic, compelling preaching style that will penetrate and persuade even the toughest audience member. Theologically based and filled with practical applications, The Moment of Truth teaches preachers at every skill level how to make their special moment in the pulpit a profound moment of truth, turning people’s hearts to the glory of God.
