Format: Paperback
This book includes practical advice for anyone who feels called to preach. The ten chapters

cover everything from what sources to consult during sermon preparation to getting feedback

from the congregation. Not only is each chapter written by a different author, but this book is a

collaboration of twenty-seven preachers. These varied voices allow each reader to explore what

"works" in the pulpit.

After the introduction to each chapter are sections on "goals," "instructions," "things encouraged

and discouraged," "best answers to questions," a short "conclusion," and a "bibliography" of

sources pertinent to that chapter. This makes for less of a how-to book and more of a dialogue

with a group of professionals. Not only is this a good starting place for a seminary student, like

me, but also would make a good resource for any pastor who wants to re-explore how to make

their ministry more effective. Any chapter could be read alone to give pointers on how to

improve their way of spreading the word of God.

This was required reading for my preaching class at Harvard by Rev. Matthew Myer Boulton. It was one of the best on the syllabus. It's an easy read, tons quotes and short writings of advice from famous preachers broken down into chapters by subject. I keep it on my bedside table and open it regularly when I need some inspiration to start a sermon, or just to brush up on my preaching skills.

I was not impressed with the format. It was helpful, but I think there may be better books on the subject.
