Release Date: June 01, 1998
In this volume James Earl Massey explores both the sense of burden and the sense of joy that accompanies the preaching task. He gives attention to the preacher's sense of the inward side of the task, next to the outward side of preaching. He then considers the togetherness that earnest preachers seek to experience with their hearers, followed by reflections on the planning necessary for the eventfulness that preaching was ordained by God to offer. After almost fifty years of preaching, Massey offers insight and reflection that will remind, inform, stimulate, and encourage all who bear the necessary and perennial responsibility to prepare and preach the Word.
