"Nothing is better calculated to restore health and vitality to the church than a recovery of true, biblical, contemporary preaching." Thus says John Stott in this modern classic, which presents practical guidelines and experienced perspectives to foster such a recovery.
After looking at contemporary objections to preaching, Stott examines how preaching can serve to build bridges across chasms of political, social, and ethical controversies. He then discusses how to overcome obstacles to Bible study and how to prepare sermons. He concludes with a thoughtful reflection on the responsibility of preachers to live their message with sincerity, courage, and humility.

"A glance at the contents indicates the scope of this remarkable book. Stott shows the glorious heritage and the mighty effect of preaching over the centuries, and incidentally throughout the book displays an astonishing breadth and depth in his own reading on the subject. He faces head-on the objections to preaching, he marshals encouragement to preaching, and he shows how one foot of the preacher must always be anchored in the Bible and the other in the contemporary world. The chapters on the study and the preparation which make for effective preaching are full of wisdom and helpful advice, and will be both a challenge and an inspiration to preachers."
