“Preaching on your feet” is the phrase public speaker and pastor Fred Lybrand uses to describe his unique method of pulpit communication. In layman’s terms, it involves being “in the moment,” not solely relying on pre-written notes (though they can still be helpful), and staying open to what God might have in store during any given preaching appointment. It all adds up to a heart-to-heart style of delivery that makes preaching a joy for both the orator and listener time and again. Aspiring and veteran pastors alike will find much to consider and implement in this refreshing new volume on homiletics.
