The authors freely share their experiences and wisdom on a host of topics such as the initial call to preach, discipline, study patterns, conveying a message, using the lectionary, coordinating with the church year and other calendars, preaching sermon series, illustrating sermons, keeping notes and files, how to organize material, polishing the sermon, delivery, coordinating worship, feedback, and assembling a good preacher's library.
