A Handbook for Preachers

No function of the pastor is as visible and stress inducing as preaching. Being a good preacher requires learning the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical skills needed to effectively share God's word with a congregation. It demands a commitment to the craft of preaching. But few pastors feel adequately prepared for this high-stakes responsibility when they begin their ministries.

Based on her book A Little Handbook for Preachers, Mary Hulst provides foundational concepts and tips that all pastors can use, whether they are ministry newcomers or seasoned professionals.
