"The first half of the book gives the theological justification for lay preaching. The second half of the book contains six easy to use lessons to learn how to preach as a lay person. Tested and refined by twelve churches in Vermont before publication."
"Some more traditional lay ministers will struggle with this book, but do not dismiss the entire book because a page here or there bothers you. Johnston has a lot of good point. The world is changing and though the message of the Cross never changes, the way we communicate that message may have to change a lot."
