The book benefits anyone who desires an approach to preaching that gets at listeners' felt needs. What we have been taught about preaching and our chosen approach to preaching may not serve us or our listeners well. Thus, the preacher's fidelity to an ineffective approach to preaching lies at the heart of the problem. This book helps preachers resolve this issue with life-situation preaching, an approach that begins with listeners' needs. Herein readers will experience the power of life-situation preaching to address the spiritual and practical problems--challenges, struggles, and unique experiences--African-Americans face daily.
