Publisher's Description

"The amazing lack of concern for purpose among homileticians and preachers has spawned a brood of preachers who are dull, lifeless, abstract and impersonal; it has obscured truth, hindered joyous Christian living, destroyed dedication and initiative, and stifled service for Christ." –Jay Adams, from the book Preaching needs to become purposeful, says Jay Adams, because purposeless preaching is deadly. This book was written to help preachers and students discover the purpose of preaching has and the ways that the Scriptures inform and direct the preaching task. Preaching with Purpose, like the many other books of Jay Adams, speaks clearly and forcefully to the issue. Having read this book, both students and experienced preachers will be unable to ignore the urgent task of purposeful preaching. And the people of God will be the better for it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It will be a much-used tool in my library. I have recommended this book to other ministers as a great resource to revitalize their preparation and delivery for the preaching moment.

    If you are a preacher and have not read this book, shame on you! The introduction alone is worth the price of the book. I believe Adams absolutely "nails" the reason for the current sorry situation in preaching, and I also believe he has the answer to it. Buy this book, find a quiet place to read it, and be prepared to have your cage rattled!!
