Editorial Reviews

Vox Reformata
This short, very readable book stimulates sound thinking on how to 'package' biblical truth in a way that is most likely to communicate effectively to our hearers.
Evangelical Homiletics
Willhite, an EHS founding father, is an expert on the subject of relevance in expository preaching. . . . A particular strength of Willhite's book are the many charts and models that guide the reader through the author's thinking.
Preaching
. . . a cookbook for preachers who want sermons that are more filling and still taste great.
— Michael Duduit
Preaching Magazine
[Preaching with Relevance] is a practical volume and an enjoyable read that will be helpful to anyone who preaches.

Meet the Author

Keith Willhite is an ordinary guy who "stands up in front of people and tells them where to go." At least that’s the way his daughter described him . . . when she was three. Keith is the Chairman and Professor of Pastoral Ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. But anyone who knows him well will tell you that his primary occupation is cheering for Kentucky basketball. Keith; his wife, Denise; and their two young children enjoy zoos, fishing, soccer, and almost anything outdoors.

Haddon W. Robinson es un conferenciante muy conocido y uno de los maestros del programa radial Descubra la Palabra. En su calidad de profesor distnguido del Seminario Gordon-Conwell, imparte conferencias y es autor de varios libros.
