Not just for preachers, this book will get anyone involved in word ministry listening carefully to God’s word and thinking carefully about application. I’ll be recommending it to friends in ministry.
Amy Wicks, Women’s Ministry, London
Finally a book on application which puts the biblical author in the driving seat – not the preacher, the congregation, or our culture! Packed with lots of examples, this will point the way for newbies and challenge seasoned preachers to rethink their sermon preparation. This will be essential reading for all my trainees.
Denesh Divyanathan, Founding Pastor of The Crossing Church in Singapore and President of Project Timothy, Singapore
Carefully nuanced, with sharp insight, this book expounds key principles for applying God’s Word to us today. In doing so, it exposes common pitfalls and habits, as the challenge to listen more attentively to scripture is winsomely brought to life. By revitalising this essential purpose of the preacher’s task, this book will prove to be a welcome blessing, not only to the preacher, but to those they serve.
Matt Peckham, Assistant Minister, Rock Baptist Church, Cambridge, UK
This outstanding book on listening to God should be read by every man or woman who wishes to serve others in the ministry of God’s Word. It will both liberate, from the need to become a sociology guru; and challenge to listen to God with more humility. Most of all it will equip for deep and relevant Bible teaching.
