How can today’s preaching recover the vitality of its great Reformation heritage? What are the main weaknesses of the contemporary pulpit, and how can they be met biblically?

Eighteen leading pastors and homiletical scholars have joined in this volume to address these questions as they offer sharp analysis, biblical insight, and practical directives. 

Under the topics “The Man,” “The Message,” and “The Manner,” the authors deal with the preacher’s calling, piety, personal bearing, appearance, study, organization, delivery, and much more. Their contributions include:

J. I. PackerWhy Preach?
James Montgomery BoiceThe Preacher and Scholarship
R. C. SproulThe Whole Man
Samuel T. Logan Jr.The Phenomenology of P reaching
Edmund P. ClowneyPreaching Christ From All the Scriptures
