A powerful synthesis of biblical truth and storytelling

The challenge of contemporary preaching is packaging a message that holds the attention and touches the hearts of those who listen--while offering biblical substance in the process. Many preachers long to bring exposition and narrative together in a style that leads to transcendent moments. Calvin Miller has preached and equipped preachers for decades. In Preaching, he offers a volume of helpful insights for pastors and homiletics students to deliver the heart of the gospel via the Jesus-approved vessel of compelling storytelling.


"One of our best preachers and writers tells us what he does best--and why and how."--Eugene Peterson

"Miller comes as a master storyteller to teach us how to tell the gospel to a generation thirsting for narratives to explain our world."
--Bryan Chapell

"[This book] can change your preaching for a lifetime."--Haddon Robinson
