Abstract:

In compact form Dr. Adams offers a wealth of advice and challenges preachers of the Word to reconsider preaching from a radically biblical perspective. Affirming that a strong sense of purpose can transform a preaching ministry, in each chapter he offers new directions for achieving this goal. Dr. Adams's objective is "to develop a textbook on preaching for pastors, seminary students, and other Christian speakers that, I hope, will make an impact in our day significant enough to change preaching substantially." Preaching with Purpose may be used by an individual or in a class. The class assignments at the conclusion of chapters are designed for teachers to use in formal situations, but individual readers also may wish to adapt them for their personal enrichment. This book is not a mere restatement of past ideas and practices in contemporary language. It takes a new turn. - Publisher.
