Pastors and seminary students need to learn how to connect to younger church members, such as GenXers and millenials. They need a fresh wineskin for the timeless message of redemption. The challenge of contemporary preaching is packaging a message that holds the attention and touches the hearts of those who listen--while offering biblical substance in the process. Many preachers long to bring exposition and narrative together in a style that leads to transcendent moments. This book will help you embrace this healthy combination and preach in a way that is kingdom-building.

^Calvin Miller has preached and equipped preachers for decades. In Preaching, he offers a volume of helpful insights for pastors and homiletics students to deliver the heart of the gospel via the Jesus-approved vessel of compelling storytelling.

^^^^^A lifetime of preaching and teaching the art of preaching crackles and pops in this bonfire of a book. In sentences of heat and light--blazing passion, luminous intelligence--Calvin Miller, one of our best preachers and writers, tells us what he does best--and why and how."
--Eugene Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College

A must read
4 stars By Kieran Carr, Dec 05 2016
Preaching is Calvin Miller's Magnus Opus in which he shares every important thing he has learned in his 'thirty-five years of pulpit experience as well as...fourteen years of teaching preaching' . His argument is best expressed in the final words of his introduction:

"In this book I hope to encourage the preacher to preach as God intended preaching to be done - in both a narrative and expository manner."

He argues against expository preaching as linear, left-brained, and highly propositional . Instead, 'throughout this book I will be arguing for preaching as craft'.  I agree with Miller that most expository sermons are too 'left-brained' and appreciate his commitment to restoring some balance to 'the art of expository preaching' . This book adds a touch of freshness to books on preaching such as those by Chapell, Robinson, and Piper.

This book is a must-read for anyone interested in preaching. It is full of treasures - wisdom, depth, experience, and creativity - for preachers young and old.
