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.
Preaching Matters by Jonathan Lamb was published by IVP in July 2014 and is our 16338th best seller. The ISBN for Preaching Matters is 9781783591497.
Preaching Matters provides the reader with an excellent all-in-one guide to biblical preaching that results in the recipients encountering the living God. This is an excellent starting point for new preachers, and a warm and robust revision for seasoned leaders. Jonathan Lamb uses the text of Nehemiah 8 to guide us through what preachers should be grappling with, practicing and aiming for in order to continue to grow and become masters at their art.
Lamb splits the book into three sections. The first focuses rightly on the heart of preaching and the preacher—getting the preachers relationship with the living God right as a matter of utmost importance in biblical preaching. The second focuses on the ‘art’ of preaching. What we might normally find in homiletics textbooks in summarized in a readable and accessible manner. In the third section, Lamb focuses on the purpose of preaching, elucidating the subtitle of his book: Encountering the living God.
The additional seven appendices make this excellent introduction to biblical preaching even more useful in providing the tools for the training of new preachers. This book is warm, encouraging, and full of wisdom – a must for every preacher, new and experienced.
A. The Word of God and the Heart of Preaching
B. The Teacher and the Work of Preaching
C. The Congregation and the Purpose of Preaching

"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.
