I have read dozens of books on preaching; none of them answered my question, namely, 'What is a good sermon?' But David Buttrick's book answers that question: 'Christian preaching tells a story and names God,' (cf. p. 16). And, the sermon progresses in 'moves,' a sort of verbal paragraph that he explains in great detail. I love this book. Buttrick is a terrific homiletic teacher.
