"Howell, gifted preacher, scholar, pastor, author and teacher, offers preachers a rich fare in the feast that is The Beauty of the Word. He interweaves biblical, historical, literary, and popular culture insights into a book that, while offering practical advice on the craft of preaching, is, at the same time, an eloquent meditation on the glory and limitations of preaching and the preaching life."
--Alyce M. McKenzie, Professor of Homiletics, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
"In a culture where everything gets ground into bite-sized, easily digestible sound bites, Howell sounds the trumpet clearly, waking us up to the truth of the gospel's urgency and scope. Howell reminds us that the gospel is a word unlike other words, a word with some size!"
--from the foreword by Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
"Howell's graceful vision of preaching, of preacher, and of preaching in relationship to the contemporary experience of our listeners is magnificently energizing. Urgent. Imaginative. Honest. Full of grace."
--Thomas Edward McGrath, Pastor, Hope Presbyterian Church, Winter Haven, Florida
