Item description for Prepared To Preach: God's Work and our's in proclaiming His Word (Christian Focus) by Greg Scharf...

Overview
'Prepared to Preach' offers an accessible and concise aid for all those who have been challenged to preach or feel a growing compulsion to do so. This is an essential read for all those who are wondering precisely where to start in preparing to expound God's word, whether it is for the Divinity Student, the layperson, the Para church worker or the short-term missionary. This is a comprehensive yet digestible guide. Scharf focuses on the attitudes and skills those inexperienced in preaching need to develop, whilst at all times re-enforcing that although there are a number of things you, the preacher, must do, it is what God does that is at the heart of preaching. This book illuminates to us how to prepare our minds to preach, how to prepare the congregation to hear and obey God's word, how to prepare the message God gives you to preach, and also how to deliver the message you have prepared. Throughout it all Scharf is motivated by a tremendous concern to equip preachers so that they might clearly express God's word.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prepared To Preach: God's Work and our's in proclaiming His Word (Christian Focus)?

As a student taking the course ...  Oct 1, 2006
There are many longer and more involved texts than this. Some would argue that there are better texts as well. But comparison isn't where I really want to go. What is important is that this book covers the fundamentals of sermon construction and delivery very well. It can easily be considered an essential fundamental for one's "toolbox".

Dr. Scharf's direction is simple and clear: Have your heart and your self prepared. Then prepare your message under the direction of the Holy Spirit and the direction found in the Word. Let the Word speak for itself with its redemptive message.

Get book and make full use of it. It's the preacher's or pastor's equivalent to the manual of style. It's the framework for effective sermons.

Dr. Scharf is Associate Professor and Chair of the department of Pastoral Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He has served as president of the Evangelical Homiletics Society.
