Seminaries, teachers, and students of preaching, as well as preachers in the active ministry are always on the alert for books to guide them in the construction of effective sermons. This is a book specifically designed to do this very thing. R. C. H. Lenski for a quarter century taught at Capital Seminary in the field of exegesis, dogmatics, and homiletics. He is the author of a monumental commentary on the entire New Testament. Few men have been better qualified to furnish a book on effective sermon construction. Richard C. H. Lenski (1864-1936) was a German-born Lutheran pastor, scholar, and author who published a series of Lutheran New Testament commentaries.
