Ten Preachers and teachers share contemporary insights and practical help for sermon preparation and delivery.

Peter Adam, John Chapman, Richard Condie, John Dickson, Harry Goodhew, Michael Gourlay, Adrian Lane, Robin Payne, Keith Rayner, David Williams.

Not another book about preaching! As preparation for preaching is a solitary, time-consuming and responsible activity, no experienced preacher would buy such a book unless it contained different, contemporary and practical advice and, as illustration of this, some real sermons already preached to real congregations with no thought of publication.

By inviting some highly credentialed preachers Peter Adam, John Chapman, Richard Condie, John Dickson, Harry Goodhew, Michael Gourlay, Adrian Lane, Robin Payne, Keith Rayner and David Williams to contribute a chapter on a particular aspect of preaching and/or a sermon, the Simeon Association has given preachers a great gift in making this material available to fellow preachers and would-be preachers. Common themes display a variety of insights and aspects reflecting not only the topics under consideration, but the individual perceptions and gifts of the authors.

This collection contains ideas and practical help for experienced preachers who might wish that this wisdom was imparted to them long ago. Those new to preaching will learn skills and habits whose fruit will enrich the spiritual lives of their fellow Christians.
