KIRKUS REVIEW

Professor MacLennan of Yale Divinity School here shares with a wider public the substance of lectures on preaching delivered at ministers' conferences at Union Theological Seminary in New York and at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. In them the author explores through a look-in on his fellow ministers how a preacher may produce sermons of solid substance and enduring value. The chapter headings give some hint as to Professor MacLennan's approach: ""Perspectives"" ""Objectives"", ""Resources"", ""Methods"", ""The Paster Preaching"", ""The Unifying Word"". As any conscientious preacher is anxious to improve his craftsmanship and make his sermons more effective his meaty volume should be welcomed by them. A Religious Book Club selection.
