Description
"This little book is written for ordinary ministers who preach regularly to ordinary people in ordinary places... Most of us preach in gatherings that are smaller than we would wish and tougher than we might have hoped when we entered pastoral ministry... There is a voice on our shoulders who whispers as we prepare, and then as we preach, `Is it really worth it?" From The Introduction

Christopher Ash tell us that it is worth it. More than that, he sets out a charter for preaching that draws from the very roots of the Old Testament - showing us that nothing in the world is more worthwhile - for preaching is God's strategy to rebuild a broken world.

Just what is needed in an age that is so critical of preaching. I thoroughly recommend this book not only to new preachers, but also to people like myself who have been preaching for nearly forty years!

Grounding the book on the pattern of Moses in Deuternonomy seemed odd at the beginning, but fully justified in what follows. As an old Congregationalist I was very interested to see the author placing such stress on the actual gathering of the congregation to listen to God's Word being announced through preaching.

This small book campares favourably with P T Forsyth, Lloyd-Jones, and Stott's classic works on the subject.

Another brilliant book from Christopher Ash. So great to hear someone clearly putting across our need to preach to congregations on a regular basis.
