In Preaching with Biblical Motivation, a volume from the Reformed Academic Dissertation series, Ray Heiple traces motivational theories and practices in academia—also looking at various educational and preaching models—and shows from Scripture how to motivate others and be motivated biblically yourself.

Ray E. Heiple Jr. (B.A. Penn State, M.Div. & D.Min. RPTS) is the senior Pastor of Providence Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Robinson, PA, and hosts the TV series Origins, and regularly appears on Hard Questions on CTVN.
An outstanding piece of scholarship every sermon is preached on some notion of how people are motivated to respond .Most preachers of the Reformed persuasion could tell you what motivations should not be used, but a great number of the same preachers have likely not thought through and employed a coherent, biblical model of motivation.
—C.J. Williams, Professor of Old Testament Studies, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Finally, a book which builds its understanding of motivation in preaching squarely on the sermons found in the Bible itself! Dr. Heiple shows in detail how the Apostles Peter and Paul sought to motivate their audiences, and how preachers today can follow in their inspired footsteps. Heiples work evidences careful scholarship, is very enlightening and deeply convicting. A much needed antidote to emotion-heavy but truth-light preaching.
—Bailey Cadman, previous senior pastor, Providence Presbyterian Church, Robinson, Pennsylvania
The modern church has been awash with various motivational theories, each claiming to hold the golden key to effective preaching. Dr. Heiple subjects them to insightful critique and then offers a helpful explanation of human motivation informed by the Bible and Reformed theology. May the Lord use this book to encourage and equip preachers through whom he fulfills his promise to the church, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).
—Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
