If you want to grow in your preaching ability, I’d like to invite you to a year of reading preaching books with me.
Here’s how it will work.
- First, join the Facebook group. Feel free to post there with observations, questions, and reflections on the books as we read them. Click on this link and request to join the group, and I’ll add you.
- Then, read the book for the month. I’ve included a schedule below. I’ve tried to pick a good selection of books, all well recommended, that approach preaching from different angles.
- On the last full week of the month, I’ll post a review (on Tuesday) along with some highlights from that book (on Thursday).
My hope is that we will all grow as preachers this year by reading and reflecting on these books. I’d love for you to join me.
