Feed My Sheep: A Passionate Plea for Preaching

4.04 of 5 stars 4.04  ·  rating details  ·  187 ratings  ·  23 reviews
Biblical preaching is nearing extermination in our day. There is "sharing," "suggesting," plenty of storytelling, and lots of preaching to "felt needs." But the authoritative, expositional opening of the Word of God is more rare to find all the time. This book is a plea for preachers to "preach the Word." In the Old Testament God decried the fact that His people were peris ...more

This is a series of articles on preaching, and I really enjoyed a few of them, while I found others a bit dry.

I thought the Expository Preaching article was good because it talked about the importance of teaching from the entire Bible and not just the comfort passages that everyone recognizes.

I also enjoyed the Preaching With Authority article because it boldly points out that God's Word hasn't changed even though our society openly accepts many things that are not based on New Testament teachi
This book was originally written and published in the late 90s by Soli Deo Gloria Publications and then was republished again in 2004 by Ligonier Ministries. The newest publication of the book is the second edition published by Reformation Trust now in an attractive hardback cover. The work consists of eleven chapters, each chapter written by the eleven contributing pastors listed above. The overall theme as indicated by the book's subtitle is "a passionate plea for preaching." The book, then, i ...more
Feed My Sheep is an indispensable resource for preachers. It’s not a homiletic how-to rather it focuses on what preaching should be and what it should accomplish. And it’s written by some of the best preachers and communicators of our generation. You have essays by Ligon Duncan, Al Mohler, James Montgomery Boice, Derek Thomas, Joel Beeke, R. C. Sproul, R. C. Sproul Jr., Sincalir Ferguson, Don Kistler, Eric Alexander, John Piper, and John MacArthur. If you could create a list of more qualified ex ...more

I have to admit a few things as I begin writing about this book. I love preaching. I love to hear preaching. I love to read preached sermons. I love to read about preaching: mechanics, theory, necessity, etc. I love preaching.
I also love preachers. I feel greatly indebted to the men who have given their lives to the public proclamation of God’s Word. I love to read their sermons. I love to read their books. I love to learn about them, their lives, and their faith. I just am sincerely blessed by
Might be the best book on preaching that I've ever read. It is inspirational rather than technical, and inspire it does. There are eleven different authors, but one theme runs throughout: Preach the Word. The book's subtitle is entirely accurate; this IS a passionate plea for preaching, and it carries a sense of urgency for the task. I will keep this one on a shelf nearby to peruse during those times when a pastor's heart may start to grow faint.

Last two article from John Piper and John MacArthur was my favorate, it literally re-ignites my heart and made me kneel before God rethinking my calling for His ministry... One day I would say this book helped me a lot while I was in one of my darkest hours.
Sam Murrell
This is a nice collection of readable chapters that can be read in any other. Each chapter stands alone and is a welcomed addition to any preachers library.
A collection of articles on preaching from some of the greatest authorities on the subject. Mohler, MacArthur, Piper, Ferguson, Boice, Sproul etc...
This book is not however, the standard plea for 'we need more expository preaching' over & over. That is one of the articles, but there is much more focus on the task of preaching... why homelitics is so important, the teaching preacher, preaching to the mind, to the heart, to suffering people, preaching with authority, preaching in evangelism a
Jared Lovell
Good book. Simple, yet challenging. Emphasizes the importance and centrality of preaching in worship. Valuable for pastors and laymen alike.
Mark A Powell
Written by preachers for preachers, this instructive work details the value of proclaiming God’s Word -- as it is written -- without ceding to the temptation to modernize or minimize what it says. It also addresses what makes preaching effective and what must be avoided. As with any compilation, some chapters are more helpful than others, but the whole volume remains a benefit to those called to preach (or to those wondering what biblical preaching entails).
John Licata
This was a good read. For a lay person this was great to provide a perspective on preaching and the thinking and biblical perspectives behind it. I found most of the authors to be very insightful. Some came from a deep rooting in the scripture. Some relied on the Word backed by the examples from reformers. One or two shared much from experience and personal perspective. All in all definitely worthwhile.
Peter N.
Overall a good book to renew one's vision for preaching. I did not think it was great. Some essays I found really good. (D. Thomas, both Sproul Sr. and Jr. and Piper) Most were just average. I was probably not as excited after reading the book because they are trying to convince pastors of the value of expository preaching. I am already whole-heartedly committed to it.
Michael Locklear
A great book for any pastor to gain encouragement and understanding in leading their flock. I especially enjoyed various chapters, such as "The Primacy of Preaching" by Dr. Mohler, Jr. and "Expository Preaching" by Derek Thomas.
Some of the essays in this book were rad, some were not bad, others were a tad bad. This is one of those inspirational books that can help get you fired up to preach and give some helpful pointers along the way.
Joseph McBee
Take some of the best preachers today and ask them to write about preaching. That's how you make a good book on preaching.
Good book about expository preaching. Recommended for those who are interested in preaching or pastoral ministry.
A very good book on preaching with a different author (all very solid authors) contributing to each chapter.
John Yelverton
An absolutely amazing book that should be read by every man seeking to enter the ministry.
David Varney
A mixture if some helpful essays and some that were quite dry. Not bad.
Pete Williamson
A great book for any preacher. Highly recommended.
Marshall Walter
A couple really good chapters...the rest was alright.

“But rarely do you hear a church described, first and foremost, by the character, power, and content of its preaching. This is because few preachers today are true servants of the Word.” 1 likes
“When the minister of the gospel faces the Lord God as judge, there will be many questions addressed to him. There will be many standards of accountability. There will be many criteria of judgment. But in the end, the most essential criterion of judgment for the minister of God is, "Did you preach the Word? Did you fully carry out the ministry of the Word? In season and out of season, was the priority of your ministry the preaching of the Word?” 0 likes
