“Nothing is better calculated to restore health and vitality to the church than a recovery of true, biblical, contemporary preaching.” Thus says John Stott in this modern classic, which presents practical guidelines and experienced perspectives to foster such a recovery.
After looking at contemporary objections to preaching, Stott examines how preaching can serve to build bridges across chasms of political, social, and ethical controversies. He then discusses how to overcome obstacles to Bible study and how to prepare sermons. He concludes with a thoughtful reflection on the responsibility of preachers to live their message with sincerity, courage, and humility.
This book will encourage and challenge those who read it to make God’s message of salvation known to a world in dire need of hearing it.
