Endorsements & Reviews-

"Preaching at its best is 'truth on fire.' The real quality of this book is that it has been created from the author's own experience of the local pastorate and is concerned with practical insights and realities. I warmly recommend it."
--David Coffey, Moderator of the Free Churches and General Secretary of the Baptist Union

"For some, the phrase 'finding the plot' suggests a stroll through a graveyard, which is much like their view of preaching. But Roger Standing uses the phrase to describe narrative preaching, an approach that helps preachers accomplish their essential task: to raise the dead."
--Marshall Shelley, Vice President, Christianity Today International and editor of Leadership

"This book, from a seasoned practitioner and an able thinker, will provide the signposts required by many either for transforming their preaching style in mid-career, or for setting off on the right foot."
--Nigel G. Wright, Principal of Spurgeon's College, London

"Roger Standing breezily shares his enthusiasm for narrative preaching. He combines theory about narrative and its cultural relevance with practical advice and preaching examples. A helpful stimulus to any preacher to branch out into narrative preaching."
--Michael Quicke, Charles Koller Professor of Preaching and Communications
