Let me invite you to eavesdrop on an Irish-Aussie conversation about
preaching. This book teems with ‘plusses’: it is short (as a tome that
takes Eutychus as its poster boy must be); it is stretching (they force
one to deal with longer texts—and leave one asking, ‘Why can’t I
summarize extended passages like that?’); it is specific (they include
actual sermons with critique); it is searching (in case you skip the first
chapter, ‘pray’ occurs eight times in the conclusion); and stirring (you
still want to preach when you’ve finished reading). If you don’t buy the
book, don’t cry if Eutychus isn’t saved!
