Good reference for homiletics basics May 22, 2003
This is a very good book for introduction into homiletics. I was a student of Fr Miller's at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, CA. It is a good text for first getting one's feet wet, and I continue to refer to it in my own preaching from time to time. His method is a rather basic one, but it still works well.
