Preaching is hard work. Anyone who has preached even for a short while will comprehend the synapse straining effort it takes to write and deliver a sermon. This book is to help people progress in their preaching over the long–haul of ministry, it addresses both skills and attitudes. Every preacher can become a better preacher.
Full of home truths, this is the book I needed as a preacher (and will probably need again in a year’s time): it often made me feel uncomfortable. Full of practical wisdom, this is a book that gave me some helpful ideas to sharpen my preaching. Full of warmth and wit, this is a book I enjoyed reading.

… preaching the Bible is a task that requires hard, painstaking, concentrated, prayerful work. Jon’s enthusiastic treatment of the subject will stimulate young preachers to roll up their sleeves, and will urge experienced preachers to keep making progress, with the aim that their last–ever sermon should be their very best. A great aim! I commend the book most warmly.
