Must read for people in the preaching aspect of church life

Almost all of these articles are short enough to be read quickly. I read them as a devotion this year and many were very good and very helpful. I probably will come back to this book from time to time. I would highly encourage others to read this book.

This is a fantastic resource with articles from leading communicators in the church.
Anyone who finds themselves preaching would benefit greatly from this book.
John Beaukema's chapter on using humor is particularly commendable.

Talbot Course: Contemporary Biblical Preaching

This is the MOTHER of ALL Preaching books! It's a collection of essays from all the preaching greats out there. Must have!

Some really great articles. Some of the sections are more helpful than others but there is not a dud among them. Will refer back to it often I am sure.

This book suffers from its strength, a huge array of widely disparate contributors.
