This well-presented book provides an insight into some of the most remarkable and influential preachers.
Preaching should confront men and women with God and eternity. In order to do this it has to be biblical. It has to tell people what God is saying in his Word. The preacher needs God with him in the pulpit. He not only preaches about God but he wants also to experience the presence of God with him as he preaches. If he does not he will cease to make a difference. He may continue to be popular and to a degree be useful, but he will not be making the difference that matters.
