Dr. Gardner C. Taylor was a faithful Christian preacher whose life and ministry should be studied and remembered. This book features six lessons contemporary preachers can learn from this pulpit giant. Jared E. Alcantara has written a practical, challenging, and encouraging work that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and highly recommend.
