    Biblical preachers beware! While this book does give some good advice on preparing topical "talks," or sermons, it is from a definitively liberal slant.The sample sermons in the back make a mockery of biblical authority. The premise that you must preach unoffensively is carried to the extreme that should a topic from the Scripture itself be offensive, it's best to hedge as much as possible.I would have avoided this book had I been able to preview it. Refer to Broadus' "On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons" instead, and save your money here.

    I found this book to be quite helpful in considering the structure and nature of a topical sermon. Allen gives the reader a good framework to work off of when considering what makes for a solid topical sermon.Allens book does well to stay on the practical side of sermon preparation, and he proves that by actually giving you tips on how to shape and prepare a topical sermon. He is well versed in this process, and gives examples all throughout the book on how to preach topically. For me, his best section of the book came at the end when he not only gave you tips on how to preach on controversial issues, but also gave a few examples of topical sermons preached by well known pastors. In fact, the section on Strategies For Preaching Controversial Sermons was in itself worth the price of the book!! Anytime I can avoid needlessly hurting peoples feelings I most certainly want to do so; and, this very helpful chapter gave many tips on how to approach volatile issues. All in all, I think it was a good book. Sometimes it was a little dry, but for the most part, I enjoyed it.
