This book is not what I expected. It is suitable only for a conservative Christian minister or teacher. I plan to return it!
a good tool Apr 8, 2006
We all need a good story. We need to people our exposition with the concrete. The listeners hope to hear the words "there was this man that... or I am told that ...", knowing that the preacher is using a storehouse of wisdom. Preaching is not about one's own special story, but about clearly and in an entertaining manner telling our shared experience and needs. This type of book is a must for all who preach or speak.
