A holistic view of preaching that paints the way to good preaching and good living.

Simply hearing the word “holistic” turns off some of us who are not familiar with the concept and may therefore think it represents starry-eyed impracticality…especially as relates to our lives as preachers. In Practicing the Preaching Life, David B. Ward shows us that a holistic view of preaching is actually quite practical; preaching requires not only a way of speaking well, but also a way of living well. As pastors, we lead a life that requires us to engage in Christian practices, but to reach our spiritual communities we must present our message within relatable contexts. And that can be tricky to balance. Not only does this book explore the rhythms of the preaching life and the definition of what it means to be a good preacher, what makes it distinctive is Ward’s sense of compassion for all who live this embedded life.
