Baptist National Resource Centre has a wide range of books, DVDs, and training tools available for loan to Baptist churches and pastors. These books have been recently added to the collection:
Preaching With Variety: How to Re-Create the Dynamics of Biblical Genres – Jeffrey D Arthurs
Bored with your own preaching? Arthurs suggests preaching with variety and excitement is possible if Scriptures are treated as a library of different types of great literature, rather than as an assortment of texts from which to build sermons. The book focuses on several of these genres – poetry, proverbs, narrative, parables, letters, and apocalyptic literature. Each chapter has practical suggestions and checklists.
The Folly of Preaching: Models and Methods – Michael P Knowles (Ed.)
This book contains theoretical and practical insights into preaching from 16 well-known preachers, scholars and homiletics teachers. It also includes 12 sermons reflecting on the key theme of grace amid weakness and need.
The Glory of Preaching: Participating in God’s Transformation of the World – Darrell W Johnson
Johnson maintains that something transformative, empowering and life-giving happens whenever anyone faithfully preaches from God’s Word. He calls this the ‘glory of preaching’. If you have been wondering if your preaching is worth the effort, then this book will encourage and inspire you to believe that, yes, it is!
