Item description for Feed My Sheep by H. M. S. Richards & Review and Herald Publishing Association...
Overview A Great Preacher Writes on Great Preaching "I have been impressed with two things. The first is that everything that could be said about preaching has already been said, and said better than I could say it. The second is that I know very little about the subject and feel that I have failed in almost every point to be a real preacher and a strong preacher, much less a great preacher." With that warning, H.M.S. Richards, the "preacher's preacher," went on to deliver an exceptional series of lectures to preachers and seminarians in 1957 that, in published form, soon became a classic. Brimming with anecdotal gems from his vast experience in evangelism and gleaned from his wide reading, Feed My Sheep has become a treasured manual on preaching for several generations of pastors. The counsel seems strikingly contemporary ("The smaller the pulpit, the better"; "Vital preaching is almost always conversational"; "Preach without notes"), while the stories seem timeless. Most of all, Pastor Richards argues that the only preaching that changes lives is that which centers upon the incomparable Christ, "He of the pierced hands." Few books offer more information-and inspiration-per paragraph; few will light such a lively fire in the soul. Harold Marshall Sylvester Richards (1894 -1985), third-generation preacher, founded the Voice of Prophecy radio broadcast. His ministry inspired broadcasts in 36 languages on more than 1,100 stations, and Bible courses in 80 languages offered by 144 correspondence schools. He was awarded the Honor Citation of the National Religious Broadcasters organization in both 1967 and 1970. Dr. Richards loved great literature. The walls of his study were lined with books from floor to ceiling. His spirit -filled preaching was much in demand at camp meetings and other large gatherings throughout the world. He fathered four children and authored a number of books. His own life story is told in a book by his daughter (H.M.S. Richards: Man Alive!) and in H.M.S. Richards, by Robert E. Edwards.
