A Simple Approach to the Sacred Task
  • By Daniel Overdorf
Product Description
Preaching with power and conviction is too important to be left to chance
In Preaching, experienced preacher and teacher of preachers, Daniel Overdorf, leads readers through a tested process for sermon preparation that takes proclaiming God's Word seriously yet does not overcomplicate the task or overwhelm the preacher. Overdorf describes and demonstrates consistent, manageable steps to effective preaching, including:
  • Clarifying the convictions that drive your preaching
  • Identifying the main idea of a Scripture text
  • Forming memorable word pictures,
  • Reducing reliance on notes
  • Connecting with the congregation throughout the sermon
  • Speaking authentically

"Overdorf has promised a textbook for beginning preachers--and it certainly delivers on that--but it is more. With exercises, examples, sidebars, and bonus articles he takes us beyond the basics. This book will put new preachers on the right track and help old preachers find the track again." --Jeffrey Arthurs, PhD, Robinson Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Daniel Overdorf, drawing on decades of experience preaching and training preachers, is a trustworthy guide for those learning how to preach. He takes this complex, sacred, and often intimidating task and makes it accessible for beginners, and yet even seasoned preachers will benefit from his wisdom." --Heather Gorman, PhD, Professor of New Testament, Johnson University
Preaching offers guidance for any pastor who desires to communicate God's Word more effectively. Those preparing for the pastorate will find encouragement and exercises that start their teaching ministry off on the right path. Those who preach regularly will discover resources for taking the next step in their unique journey of proclaiming the Scriptures to their congregations with power and presence.
