Remember Eutychus? He’s the guy who falls from a third floor window when he nods off during a sermon. Maybe that’s a warning for listeners – but Gary Millar and Phil Campbell see it as a lesson for preachers instead. In this challenging, practical and sometimes light-hearted book, two veteran preachers from opposite sides of the world set out to help both new and old preachers keep people awake long enough to hear the transforming words of God.
And here’s what Don Carson says about it…
I have read books on how to make sure your sermon is interesting, and I have read books on how to make sure your sermon is faithful to the text, but this book wants your sermon to be both. If I could, I would make this little book mandatory reading for seminarians everywhere, and then urge them to read it a couple more times during the course of their ministry. It avoids cutesy and manipulative suggestions, and makes its practical points while urging integrity, faithfulness, and imagination. Many books on preaching are published every year; this one is a “must.”
