Preach Like a Train Driver

Preach Like a Train Driver

$24.99

Paperback

How to give bible talks that challenge and inspire.

We've all sat through Bible talks and sermons that meander, go nowhere or are just plain dull. In this practical guide to the art and skill of preparing and delivering Bible talks, seasoned preacher Tim Hawkins shares his wisdom and experience on how to do it better.

Tim urges us to preach like train drivers - who consciously want to take people with them on a journey that arrives at a worthwhile destination.

Learn how to:
* engage people with God's word - right from the word "go"
* plan and prepare a talk so that it leads to genuine transformation through the gospel
* tell stories that are vivid and memorable
* use humour more effectively
* start and finish talks with impact
* illustrate and apply talks in a way that is faithful to the Bible, and effective in the way it is received.

The book is underpinned with a confidence in God's Word applied by the Holy Spirit as God's agent of change. But it takes seriously the gift-ing and responsibility of the preacher to deliver messages that move.
