Inspirational Preaching

The Preachers Toolbox series

by Ed. Craig Brian Larson


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Hendrickson from Alban Books
Published:April 2012
Here is the best-of-the-best of inspirational preaching help: which combines deep passion with biblical exposition, so that minds are informed and lives transformed. Insight, faithfulness, integrity and genuine emotion are real and potent here in the power of the Spirit. There is so very much that is great in this title...... ‘Only the Holy Spirit can make dry bones live and fruit grow from the hard earth of a human heart. So add your little drops to the Spirit’s mighty downpour of inspiration, and he will ‘do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us!’
Many of the essays in this volume focus on the combination of emotion with truth, integrating theory, practice, character and spirituality, from which all preaching necessarily flows. Conviction, wisdom, experience and real heart abound here that will prove to be a tonic for a weary preacher’s soul. Personal & powerful perspectives on preaching! Simply the freshest, most inspiring book on preaching I have read lately.
