A Little Book for New Preachers

By Matthew D. Kim (IVP Academic)

Today more than ever, Christians need to know what their pastors and preachers experience. A Little Book for New Preachers by Matthew D. Kim not only offers a peek into how preachers are trained, but also provides a reminder to those in the field of what is expected of them.

Part One explores preaching as a forgotten discipline, examines its great legacy and advises how to make disciples in a 20-minute message. Part Two, “Characteristics of Faithful Preaching,” provides an excellent review—and for some readers a first-time look—at how to interpret the Bible and apply it to the cultural makeup of the congregation. Part Three, “Characteristics of Faithful Preachers,” reminds the pastor to be a loving leader with uncompromising integrity—one who is Spirit-led and prayerful. It also offers laypeople insights into some of the conflicts the pastor might face.

A Little Book for New Preachers will give every reader a new respect for the God-called people God has placed in the pulpit.
