Books of sermons and homilies can make for tedious reading, unless your name is John Stott or Helmut Thielicke. However, this volume of sermons is a refreshing exception. Written by a man with a pastor's heart and vast experience of local church ministry these sermons are clear, simple, engaging and most of all applicable to daily life for followers of Jesus. Acorn Press published Clive's first book of sermons, Location Location Location Heaven - https:acornpress.net.au?s=clivebrook which was very readable. This second book is even better. I highly recommend it for preachers to learn from and for church members to be fed by.
