Preaching Matters

Full Product Description

  • Preachers and those looking to start out in preaching
  • If you've lost your passion for preaching or looking for inspiration to kick start your communciations
  • You'll be encouraged, inspired and equipped to preach dynamically & with passion
Preaching matters. It is a God-ordained means of encountering Christ. This is happening all around the world. The author knows this only too well. He recalls:

  • the student who, on hearing a sermon about new life in Christ, found faith which changed his life and future forever.
  • the couple facing the trauma of the wife's terminal illness who discovered that Christ was all they needed, following a sermon on Habakkuk.

When the Bible is faithfully and relevantly explained, it transforms hearts, understandings and attitudes, and, most of all, draws us into a living relationship with God through Christ.

This is a book to ignite our passion for preaching, whether we preach every week or have no idea how to put a sermon together. It will encourage every listener to participate in the dynamic event of God's Word speaking to his people through his Holy Spirit.

God's Word is dynamite; little wonder that its effects are often dynamic.

"This is a refreshing, clear, helpful, and accessible book which is the fruit of many years of faithful preaching and patient training of preachers." - Christopher Ash, Director of the Proclamation Trust's Cornhill Training Course.

"At last, a book on preaching for both preachers and listeners. If you're a preacher, Preaching Matters will show you how to preach without resorting to gimmicks and instead rely on the power of God's word and Spirit. If you're a listener (and all of us are), it will show you how to listen to God's glory and to your benefit. Here is a fitting manifesto not just for the Keswick Convention, but for every local church." - Tim Chester, The Porterbrook Network.

"This biblical and practical book is very timely because preaching really does matter! New preachers will find it an essential guide to laying good foundations for a lifetime of preaching. 'Old hands' will benefit enormously from this refreshing exploration of the preaching ministry." - Stephen Gaukroger, author and bible teacher, Founder & Director of Clarion Trust International.
