Back in October, I had the opportunity to do something that I had never done before. The guys at RookiePreacher.com were in the process of having their first book published, and were asking for preachers to review the book, and be on the launch team. It was going to be a book about improving your sermon prep and delivery, so they were looking specifically for a group of preachers to promote the book.
So, I was given an advanced e-version of the book. This is the first time that I have ever been able to read a book before it was published. Let me tell you, I was honored to be able to read the book, but once I got into it, it got even better. I was blown away by the practical information contained within the pages of Preaching Sticky Sermons.
The chapters are short, specifically designed to be an easy reference guide for specific topics, meaning that you can easily turn to a chapter and quickly find the information that you were looking for, without having to scan through a lot of information. The whole premise of the book, however, is what really intrigued me. It is about developing sermons that stick with people. In other words, it is about finding a way to preach memorable sermons.
The book is finally available as of today. You can pick it up here. The great thing about it is that it does not matter how long you have been preaching. There is something in this book for everyone. Different chapters will resonate with different people. What has helped me the most is the chapters about utilizing Evernote for sermon prep. I am still in the process of implementing that in my own prep, but I know that it will be very useful in the future.
I do not get anything out of promoting this book, but I think this book will help you develop your sermon prep and delivery. Preaching is a calling, and it is something we should all strive to improve in no matter how long we have been doing in. In “Preaching Sticky Sermons”, Brandon Kelley and Joe Hoagland do a fantastic job of giving practical information on how to improve your sermon prep and sermon delivery. I highly recommend this book for anyone who preaches, whether you’re just out of Bible College, or have been preaching for years. Give it a look.
