Passion in the Pulpit Review

Book Review: 

ou might be thinking; “another preaching book?” You are correct, but don’t judge a book by its cover, just yet!

Passion in the Pulpit is another classic resource for preachers who want to understand how to say what they feel compelled to say. This book is similar to those that have come before it, especially from Jerry Vines, but the book addresses the emotions of a preacher and how those should be founded upon and guided by the text, rather than the other way around.

This book is going to be helpful for preachers that need sharpening and refining, which really does include all preachers.

What a preachers feels is important and becomes evident through a sermon. But often, feeling comes first, rather than the passage and perspective from God, according to a given text. This book is a great aid in guiding preachers to the scripture and allowing the scripture to marinate the mind of the preacher first, so that people feel what the text feels, instead of vice-versa.

It’s good to see Jerry Vines, and Adam Dooley collaborating together to provide a resource that is necessary for preachers of all seasons and contexts.
