Item description for Inductive Preaching: Helping People Listen by Ralph L. Lewis & Gregg Lewis...

This book gives workable ideas that will help preachers grab and hold the interest of their listeners without sacrificing the spiritual content of their message.

Publishers Description

"I spend hours in my study and on my knees preparing sermons, but when I preach them no one listens. What's wrong? Why aren't I getting through? Why do I see blank stares, daydream reveries, nodding heads as soon as I open my mouth to preach? I know my messages are biblically sound. I'm sure I'm preaching what God has laid on my heart. But it's not being received. What's wrong? What can I do?"

Sound familiar? If you're a preacher, you probably know the feeling. But it doesn't have to be that way. You can learn to preach in a way that will be readily, even eagerly, received by your congregation.

It's all here: what inductive preaching is, how it works, why it's effective, who's used it--including Jesus, Peter, Paul, Augustine, St. Francis, Wesley, Edwards, and Moody, to name only a few. Also included are: Step-by-step guidelines for constructing an inductive sermon Two sample inductive sermons A list of 96 inductive preachers from 20 centuries A strategy for making traditional sermon structures inductive A checklist of inductive characteristics.

The principles in this book can dramatically increase your sermon effectiveness--turn apathy into involvement, make listeners out of the listless. Inductive preaching is preaching that works

"Thoroughly and convincingly sets forth the case for inductive preaching." --James W. Cox, Professor of Christian Preaching, Southern Baptist Seminary

"Will be a real service for anyone wishing to convince modern man about the gospel--a resource for all of us who preach and teach for years to come." --Jay Kesler, President of Youth for Christ

"I have read many books on preaching during my 34 years of teaching the subject. This is one of the first which I have read from beginning to end without stopping. If you plan to preach next Sunday you had better read this book today." --Lloyd M. Perry, Director, Doctor of Ministry Program, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Reviews - What do customers think about Inductive Preaching: Helping People Listen?

I've never received so many comments on my sermon!  Mar 23, 2009
I read this book one week and wrote a sermon the next, following its advice. Not only have I never received so much feedback from a sermon, but I have never so enjoyed preaching a sermon. What a gift. I can't wait to preach again.
