Judson Press The Star Book on Preaching

The Star Book for Ministers is the number one best-selling book for Judson Press with nearly one million copies sold. In this classic tradition, we offer a brand new resource for ministers with a special focus on preaching. Respected for his books on preaching, academic teaching, and pulpit skill, Marvin McMickle provides a valuable guide that addresses several different areas related to preaching tasks. Starting with a biblical basis for preaching, he discusses the "heart and habits" of a preacher emphasizing the importance of time management regarding health, head, heart, and home. He further offers keys to an effective preaching ministry which include the goals and outcomes of preaching, and text and topic selection.

Without an emphasis toward any denomination and practical in its nature, the guide offers information on various types of sermons, different preaching styles such as narrative and first-person preaching, and gives suggestions for sermon preparation. McMickle also proposes several ideas for sermon series, and offers a full list of preaching resources to use as references. Featured are over a dozen sermon outlines on various topics. These outlines address developing key points and direction, provide suggestions for an introduction and closing, and give tips for determining style and delivery. Destined to become a new classic, The Star Book on Preaching is a portable resource no preacher should be without.

This "little" book has been a "big" help in preparing sermons. Filled with useful information from a man who knows preaching first hand. The outlines in the back provide just enough ideas to write your own sermon and are worth the small price of the book.

This is an awesome reference for Preaching. I bought my wife her own on this one too. It is my opinion that every minister should have one of these books too just like the Star Book for Ministers.
