This unique volume draws on the wisdom of Christian thinkers and preachers from across the ages to present a warm and informative collection of insights on the art of preaching.

Gathering the writing of figures as diverse as Augustine, John Chrysostom, Jonathan Edwards, Gardner C. Taylor, and Barbara Brown Taylor, The Company of Preachers provides experienced advice on effective preaching, direct from the pens of those who have known it best. The book is arranged in seven divisions, each covering a central component of the preaching task. Editor Richard Lischer, himself a distinguished preacher and teacher, gives a brief introduction to each selection.

Aptly presenting a theological and historical cross-section of the church's homiletics, this volume will be invaluable to preachers, students preparing for ministry, and others seeking models of powerful Christian speech.

Fantastic collection. I read it slowly over 1.5 years or so, and it must have added a couple dozen authors to my to-read list. You could have qualms with omissions, but that's true of any anthology. Vollständige Rezension lesen

I read excerpts of this book in seminary and took it off my shelf to read it straight through. The subtitle is Wisdom on Preaching, to which I would say that some of the pieces in this book were very ... Vollständige Rezension lesen
