"John McClure is one of the brightest minds at work in homiletics today, and The Four Codes of Preaching, as his first book-length treatment of homiletical theory . . . is a mature, original, sophisticated, and, at times, controversial contribution." --Princeton Seminary Bulletin.
"It is not every day that one has the chance to witness a discipline come of age. John McClure's book affords just such an opportunity for observers of the field of homiletics." --Theology Today.
