"There are three kinds of preachers...the ones you can listen to, the ones you cannot listen to, and the ones you must listen to. I desire to be the kind of preacher you must listen to." -H. B. Charles, Jr.
Being a preacher comes with great privilege and awesome responsibility. It is a humbling task that calls for laying spiritual, mental, and physical groundwork. It is also a task that can be extremely challenging and, at times, leave you frustrated. So what happens when you are experiencing a "preaching crisis" or feeling frustrated with your sermon or personal preparation process?
In On Preaching, H. B. Charles, Jr. wants to encourage, challenge, and motivate you through the personal and pastoral insights he's learned over the years. Whether you are just starting to preach or have been preaching for some time, these insights will help you improve on your preparation process and undergird your efforts to be the kind of preacher others must listen to.
