Well, here we go – I’ve started a blog! It’s a chance for me to share my thoughts and feelings on a range of things I’m interested in. It’s also a chance for me to listen to what others are thinking and feeling about similar things.
It’s a whole new world and I feel a bit like someone taking a swim in the ocean for the first time.
Anyway, here we go …
Learning to communicate God’s Word in a way that captures people’s attention and imparts principles for life change is quite an art. Even after years of hearing many excellent preachers and gaining much preaching experience myself in a variety of settings, I’m still learning.
Here is a list of the most helpful books I’ve read:
Communicating for a Change – by Andy Stanley
Preaching with Purpose – by J.E. Adams
Biblical Preaching – by Haddon Robison
How to Speak so Youth Will Listen – by Ken Davis
Rick Warren also has an excellent course called ‘Preaching to Change Lives’ which is on CD or DVD with an accompanying manual.
