Publisher's Description

There is no doubt that the task of preaching can sometimes be overwhelming. Combining veteran wisdom, practicality, and a contagious reverence for the beauty of God's Word, veteran pastor James C. Howell leads pastors and teachers through the joyful and perplexing craft and practice of preaching. Drawing on a wide range of resources, Howell provides discussions on the "Subject Matters of Preaching," "Where Sermons Happen," "When Sermons Happen," and the "Life of the Body." The conclusion on "The Preaching Self" considers the person of the preacher. These seasoned reflections will be of great help for all who preach.

Author Bio

James C. Howell is pastor of the Myers Park United Methodist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. He is the author of a number of books, including 40 Treasured Bible Verses: A Devotional; The Will of God: Answering the Hard Questions; The Beatitudes for Today; and Introducing Christianity: Exploring the Bible, Faith, and Life.

Editorial Reviews

"Howell, gifted preacher, scholar, pastor, author and teacher, offers preachers a rich fare in the feast that is The Beauty of the Word. He interweaves biblical, historical, literary, and popular culture insights into a book that, while offering practical advice on the craft of preaching, is, at the same time, an eloquent meditation on the glory and limitations of preaching and the preaching life."
--Alyce M. McKenzie, Professor of Homiletics, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University


"In a culture where everything gets ground into bite-sized, easily digestible sound bites, Howell sounds the trumpet clearly, waking us up to the truth of the gospel's urgency and scope. Howell reminds us that the gospel is a word unlike other words, a word with some size!"
--from the foreword by Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology, Emory University


"Howell's graceful vision of preaching, of preacher, and of preaching in relationship to the contemporary experience of our listeners is magnificently energizing. Urgent. Imaginative. Honest. Full of grace."
--Thomas Edward McGrath, Pastor, Hope Presbyterian Church, Winter Haven, Florida
