Preachers of God's Word need encouragement and inspiration along the way. Respected author and preacher Warren Wiersbe utilizes fifty years of experience to crystallize the unchanging principles of preaching.

With his usual clear style and common sense, Wiersbe answers the questions What good is preaching? and What is good preaching? He draws from the examples of classic preachers and urges readers to speak to their listeners' present and personal situations.

In concise, readable chapters Wiersbe reviews topics ranging from what a preacher is to how to choose sermon themes. He provides practical suggestions for how to be understood, while inciting preachers' imagination to deeper creativity.

The Dynamics of Preaching is one of the first in a six-volume series that provides both experienced and beginning pastors with concise information to help them perform the task of ministry with efficiency, fruitfulness, and joy. Rooted in basic principles rather than passing fads, these practical books by recognized authorities address topics of perennial interest and offer sound guidance.
