What makes a good preaching book is when it explains how the theology and content of preaching flows into the practical aspects of it. This is why I highly recommend Mark Dever and Greg Gilbert’s new book, Preach: Theology meets practice. This book is well-balanced first looking at the centrality of God’s Word in the local church, how to faithfully preach it, then moves to the practical aspects of preparing a sermon, preaching it, and even reviewing it to grow in the future.
On a side note, I have known both these men for over a decade and they both are very qualified and capable counselors and teachers in regard to this particular topic, which is why I have been excited about this book’s release since they started to write it. My deeply held convictions about preaching in regard to its power and ability to build the church was hammered in me by Mark many years ago and that conviction has only grown. That conviction is likely to grow in you as you read this book and put it in to practice. You can find it on sale here.
