Preach: Theology Meets Practice - A Review.
Just finished reading this book. The authors break the book into three parts
Part One: theology of preaching. God speaking, power of His Word, Expositional preaching, and what preaching does.
(almost a reminder of why do we preach the Word each week)
Part Two is the Practice. (Application and practicality of it) It includes what to preach, prep, structure of the sermon, delivering, and reviewing.
Part Three is the author's sample and discussing their sermon transcripts.
Personally Part Three was ok to see what the author's did but Part Two was worth the book's price in gold. It helped as one is to preparing to concluding the sermons. It was a good reminder to "Preach the Word, in season and out of season."
Those going into the preaching ministry - need a copy of this book.
