Preaching Master Class
Lessons from Will Willimon’s Five-Minute Preaching Workshop
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Will Willimon is a master preacher who is eminently qualified to teach a 'master class' on preaching. Paradoxically, he refuses to master the text or the awesome responsibility of preaching the gospel. Instead, he shows us how to listen for God's word and to experience it in every moment of the pastoral life. In Willimon's reading, preaching is not an onerous burden but a lively exercise of the theological and biblical imagination. He really can't help himself! He loves words, but he loves the Word even more. The outcome of this book is something we could all use--a newfound joy in the art of preaching."

"What a wonderful collection of insightful essays that invite us preachers to learn from the homiletic wisdom of Bishop Will Willimon. Arguably, what is best about this little book is that the teacher of this wisdom has been a faithful preacher of the gospel for more than thirty years. I hope many readers will take advantage of this opportunity to enhance their growth in the art of preaching for building up the faith and life of the church."
