Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice — is a comprehensive book on preaching that remarkably provides a survey of the whole subject in a short page span. Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey presents a compendium of information that is a veritable anthology of great preachers, past and present, to encourage, instruct and inspire the reader. This highly recommended book has a motivational message for the beginning preacher, the seasoned veteran of the pulpit and for one exploring God’s call to preach the Word. As a result of careful reading and extensive research, Kirksey offers many practical "how to" insights, for example: How to accept the call of God; How to make sure you have been called and How to understand and undertake the call of God. The author insightfully weaves the sobering realities of the pastorate and the heavenly idealism of the pulpit ministry into this practical handbook that should be required reading for every preaching class. This "must read" book has been described as "very readable," and "a fast read with powerful punch."
