Overview

A few rare ideas and methods are good enough to stand the test of time. Such has been the case with the teaching of renowned preaching professor Haddon Robinson, author of the best-seller Biblical Preaching. Robinson's peers named him the most outstanding professor in the field of homiletics. Newsweek magazine identified him as one of the most outstanding and significant preachers in America. Making a Difference in Preaching offers a collection of Robinson's shorter writings on preaching spanning a forty-year period. The book is edited by Scott Gibson, one of Robinson's colleagues at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, to provide readers with a helpful understanding of Robinson's preaching theory, method, and practice. Making a Difference in Preaching helps to illuminate the key differences between good preaching and poor preaching. Its title stems from Robinson's lifelong effort to determine the distinction between those preachers who can make an hour-long sermon seem like twenty minutes and those who produce exactly the opposite effect. Each chapter contains discussion/reflection questions and a list of books for further reading. The book is well-suited for pastors looking for refreshing insights into their preaching, as well as seminary students or lay speakers.
