Overview

"While perfection in preaching is an illusive dream, improvement is within the grasp of virtually everyone" Donald HamiltonImagine that preaching is like a 'see-saw' or 'teeter-totter'. It is not much fun unless the people on both sides are roughly equal in weight. If not then one will suspended in the air, the other stuck on the ground both going nowhere!Is this what you want of your congregation? Are they left high and dry or down in the dumps by their experience.Donald Hamilton doesn't want them to suffer this fate! Preaching with balance is intended primarily for those who preach to the same congregation on a regular basis.This is the situation that most preachers find themselves in, yet most preaching books seem more intent on just providing a boost to the preacher without giving advice on how to maintain an improvement in preaching.Preaching with a balance comes complete with useful appencices on developing an annual preaching plan, planning topical and linear sermon sets and includes a useful sermon evaluation form.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Preachers ought to focus major attention on preaching. That may seem to be a firm grasp of the obvious but it often seems that preachers focus on everything else except preaching. This is why I welcome Donald Hamilton's profoundly thoughtful and wonderfully perceptive book... a genuine contribution to the important study of this noble art. ~ Paige Patterson (President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas)
