A powerful synthesis of biblical truth and storytelling

The challenge of contemporary preaching is packaging a message that holds the attention and touches the hearts of those who listen--while offering biblical substance in the process. Many preachers long to bring exposition and narrative together in a style that leads to transcendent moments. Calvin Miller has preached and equipped preachers for decades. In Preaching, he offers a volume of helpful insights for pastors and homiletics students to deliver the heart of the gospel via the Jesus-approved vessel of compelling storytelling.

"A lifetime of preaching and teaching the art of preaching crackles and pops in this bonfire of a book. Calvin Miller, one of our best preachers and writers, tells us what he does best--and why and how."--Eugene Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College

"Miller comes as a master storyteller to teach us how to tell the gospel to a generation thirsting for narratives to explain our world."--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary

"If you are a preacher, read this book! It can change your preaching for a lifetime."--Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Miller's work on narrative exposition is an important contribution that will help both novice and veteran preachers explore new approaches to proclaiming biblical truth."--Michael Duduit, editor, Preaching magazine
