This is vintage Jackman! Here is a wealth of perceptive Biblical and pastoral advice and encouragement to preachers. It includes helpful reminders of the need for expository preaching, and also clarifying warnings of some of the traps that expository preachers fall into.

This book draws together a host of themes and vital questions for preachers and would–be preachers, addressing them with the thoroughgoing biblical understanding and deep pastoral wisdom so many of us admire in David. … there are few whose insights are so valuable to those who would follow him in this task.
William Philip, Minister, The Tron Church, Glasgow
It must be nearly impossible for a book on preaching by David Jackman (reliable, proven, full–orbed preacher that he has been for fifty years) to be anything but searching, loaded with treasure and heartening. That’s how I found this book to be and that’s how I’m sure it will be for you too. I thank God for David and this ‘conversation’ he has given us on the task that is key to the future of the church.
Simon Manchester, Senior Minister, St Thomas’ Anglican Church, Sydney, Australia
This book is full of refreshing wisdom that is so useful and hugely relevant to my ministry. I have highlighted vast swathes of it and have already found myself putting many ideas into practice. I will keep returning to this book and sharing it over many years to come.
David Seckington, Assistant pastor, Trinity Church, London
… not just a book to be read once but a resource to dip in to time and time again for encouragement and correction. Perhaps best of all I found in myself a fresh vision and enthusiasm for preaching ministry as I was reminded of the ultimate purpose of preaching, which is to present people mature in Christ.
