The Moody Handbook of Preaching

Moody, 2008
ISBN: 9780802470645


Why is it that some can preach for an hour and it seems like five minutes, while others preach for only five minutes and it seems like an hour? The Moody Handbook of Preaching answers this question—first asked by Haddon Robinson—and many others through the experience, knowledge, and understanding of men and women who are experts in their fields and who love God and his church.

Chapters are divided into four sections—Forming a Philosophy of Preaching, Mining the Text, Illustrating Truth, and Developing Methodology—that offer a multidisciplinary approach to preaching.

Seasoned pastors and rookie seminarians alike will benefit from this handbook that features the work of graduate and undergraduate professors at Moody Bible Institute as well as three Moody presidents. Discover insights and greater understanding on your path to better preaching.
