Excellence in Preaching: Learning From the Best

Simon Vibert

Paperback 2011-09-16

What makes some preaching gripping - unforgettable even?
What can we learn from the best preachers?
How can we appreciate great preaching, often at the click of a mouse, without devaluing the role of the local church minister?
"Without creating a guru mentality, I focus on one positive aspect from each preacher and offer hints on how other preachers might emulate them,"' says author Simon Vibert. He also looks at the Bible's own take on good preaching, and focuses on the exemplary models of Jesus and Paul.
This is not a how-to manual, nor a biblical theology of preaching, nor even a critique of the subjects. Rather, it is a focus on modern-day practitioners, from whom all preachers can form a composite picture of excellence, and from whom all preachers would do well to learn.
