Preaching the Whole Counsel of God

4 May 2020 by Wes Bredenhof

I’m not giving a full-fledged review, just a little note to encourage my preacher colleagues to check out this book by Julius Kim, Professor of Practical Theology at Westminster Seminary California.  Why read this? There’s a lot in this book that you can find in other volumes on preaching. For those new to the task, for those who haven’t yet read many books on preaching, this would be a great primer. For those who’ve been around the block a few times, there’s still the value of review. But there’s also something in this book that you won’t find anywhere else: chapter 8, “The Influence of Neuroscience on the Design and Delivery of the Sermon.” That chapter alone made this book worthwhile for me.
