A Concise History of the Christian World Mission: A Panoramic View of Missions from Pentecost to the Present [A Book Review]

One of my most recent readings really had an impact on me. As I am currently in a class that is taking a unique look at the challenges of world mission, I found reading J. Herbert Kane’s book on A Concise History of the Christian World Mission a fascinating exploration of how the gospel spread from the […]

So That All Might Know: Preaching That Engages the Whole Congregation

In all of the books that I had the pleasure to read during my last semester, when I was in my sermon preparation class, I believe that the book by Thomas Troeger had some unique insights into the task of preparing sermons. While I previously wrote about his book Imagining a Sermon, this time I am covering […]

The Certain Sound of The Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority – [Review]

There are many people who respect the work and ministry of Samuel D. Proctor. He has been noted as one of the most prolific teachers in preaching. During my last semester of Divinity school, my class read his book The Certain Sound of the Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority. If there is any book in all […]

Dem Dry Bones: Preaching, Death, and Hope – [Review]

One of the things that I found to be fascinating about my preaching class that I took last semester was this notion that many preachers seldom preach certain aspects of the gospel. There are many preachers who only want to present a gospel that is feel good, inspiring, or exciting. At some level, this leaves many […]

Imagining A Sermon – [Review]

There are times when a preacher can find the task of crafting a sermon as inspiring as daring to write a book. With so many passages of scripture from which to pull a text from, you would think that it would be simple as one, two, three. However, preachers can be inspired in one moment and hit […]

The Homiletical Plot: The Sermon as a Narrative Art Form – [Review]

As a ministry student, I have the pleasure of reading a wide array of books that are designed to sharpen the skills of preachers. I know that when I first began ministry, I definitely could have used some sharpening to hone my speaking abilities. Despite having been a business major in high school and in undergrad, as well as […]

Unshakeable: Dismantling Satan’s Plan to Destroy Your Foundation [Review]

As you may have noticed these last few month, I have been reviewing many of the books that I have read this year. Many of these books have had an emphasis on prayer or spiritual warfare in one sense or another. One of my more recent reads includes John Eckhardt’s book Unshakeable: Dismantling Satan’s Plan to Destroy Your Foundation. In a year where there can […]

Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck [Review]

As we’re approaching the end of the year, many people’s thoughts will no doubt be focused on plans for a new year and how they can make 2018 better than 2017. I recently read Jon Acuff’s book Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work, and Never Get Stuck, following his recent visit to Regent University, where he participated in an […]

On Becoming Fearless in Love, Work and Life [Review]

With so many issues surrounding us in our lives, I thought it was an interesting proposition to take up the task of reading Arianna Huffington’s book On Becoming Fearless: in Love, Work and Life. I’m not too clear if the founder of the online news outlet Huffington Post intended this book to be exclusively for […]
