Letters to My Students testimonial 6


Aug 6th

The task of preaching—authoritatively explaining and applying God’s Word to God’s people—is both glorious and grueling. It is certainly easier to criticize than to do. And preparing the sermon isn’t even the whole task, for the minister must also prepare his soul. The sheer weight of this stewardship is why I’m so grateful for Jason Allen’s Letters to My Students: On Preaching. This practical and compelling manual explores the various dynamics related to pulpit proclamation—from discerning the call to developing the gift to delivering the message. Whether you stand behind the sacred desk each Sunday or you desire to one day, this book will serve you well.
