Product Description

As a pastor or leader, perhaps you have heard that no area of ministry is more difficult than preaching. Must it be so? Could it be that unfolding teh text, developing an outline, and presenting the Bible are much more complex than simple? James Bradford applies his considerable experience in the field of scientific research to answering the tough questions about preaching that ministers have.

Preaching: It May Be Rocket Science is a book that will challenge you to strive for excellence in the study of God's word, while at the same time equipping you for a deeper level of ministry. Bradford covers topics that are relevant to the life of a leader such as training, rebuking, time management, and aligning yourself with your message. It is a book that shows that there is more to preaching than meets the eye, and that, just maybe it is rocket science after all.
