Publishers Description

"People just don't seem to want to listen to good, solid Bible preaching. Yet they crave the things that only the Bible can give them."--from the Introduction

And so the battle rages in the heart of every pastor who longs to teach the deep truths of God's Word to a needy congregation, yet finds them reluctant to listen. Must the pastor sacrifice solid biblical preaching in order to be relevant?

No, says veteran pastor and teacher of pastors, Keith Willhite. The pastor must preach biblically AND relevantly. Relevance is inherent in the text--God took care of that--but clear communication of relevance in contemporary culture is the responsibility of the pastor. Without lowering the standard on exegetical and expository content, Willhite offers ten strategies for crafting and presenting sermons that will help listeners understand the meaning of the passage, affirm the sermon's homiletical message, and apply God's truth.

"If you want to be relevant without being biblical, no problem. Or if you want to be biblical, but not relevant, no problem. But the preacher's task is to be both biblical and relevant. Finally, this book offers strategies on how to do it."--Howard G. Hendricks

Keith Willhite (Ph.D. in communications, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.; Th.M. Dallas Theological Seminary) is "an ordinary guy who stands up in front of people and tells them where to go," at least according to his daughter when she was three. Keith teaches preaching and communications at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he serves as Chairman and Professor of Pastoral Ministries. Prior to teaching, Keith spent 10 years in the pastorate. He and his wife, Denise, live in Texas with their two children.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching with Relevance (Preaching With Series)?

Relevant Without Compromising God's Word  Mar 17, 2004
Willhite has written an excellent book on how to preach relevant sermons and Bible study lessons without watering down God's Word.

Among the points Willhite covers include:

1. When preparing sermons and lessons, prepare and present from the perspective of the pew instead of the pulpit.
2. Principles of using an interesting introduction to provide structure for your sermon or lesson.
3. Excellent notes on using proper exegesis, theology, and homiletics with God's Word.
4. Every expository sermon should stick to one main point - God created the human mind to desire unity.
5. Ask a good question then build the sermon or lesson around the question and to a conclusion.
6. Strategic uses of story-telling in a sermon.
7. Excellent principles for using illustrations.
8. Speak with clarity! Use transitions correctly.

A highly recommended read for those who seek to improve a sermon or Bible study!
