Thoughtful Proclaimer takes you from passage choice to proclamation. This book walks with you through message preparation that transforms both your heart and the hearts of your congregation or class. Aimed at those who proclaim the Word of God in a variety of church and parachurch settings, the Thoughtful Proclaimer method uses a contemplative question-based technique to determine the Commander's intent, God's purpose, for every passage of scripture. God's intent for a passage becomes the point for proclamation of a redemptive and relevant message. Anderson uses humor and story to teach good communication techniques so that every message brings lasting transformation to your listeners.
