Good Resource for Substitute Church Preachers Sep 21, 2005
This book is part of the curriculum for the United Methodist Lay Speaking course on Preaching. It gives good, solid, basic information that would help anyone who is called in to preach in a church. Obviously, as with all books, some parts of the book are better than others. The fashion advice is perhaps not the only viewpoint one would consider, but on the whole, this is a valuable resource if one finds oneself in the situation of being asked to fill a pulpit now and again. If you are taking a United Methodist Lay Speaking course on preaching, this book should be supplied to you upon registration, so buying it independently would be unnecessary.
