Book Update: A Great Start

Yesterday my new book Preaching That Moves People was released. Within 24 hours it had become Amazon’s #1 Hot Seller and, even better, Amazon’s #1 Bestseller in the field of preaching books. Granted, it’s a fairly narrow field but I’ll take what I can get. 😉 The book has received a warm welcome and I hope God uses it to bless many pastors, church planters, and seminarians for years to come.

  1. Hey Yancey!

    I’m among those who purchased your book on Amazon. I spent the last week reading through it, and finished it last night.

    For a decade I was a worship pastor in west Houston, but since August 2015 I’ve been a church planter in Baltimore (with the SEND Network). We “launched” (that is, began holding public weekly worship services) in March 2017, and that was the first time I had been tasked with preaching every single week. Needless to say, it’s been challenging and stretching, as well as exciting and rewarding.

    I found PTMP very helpful in a number of ways, especially in the exhortation to find my own voice, and the technique of “arranging for tension.”

    I wonder if you have some further resources available for demonstrating this technique. I am certainly guilty of tending to arrange sermons for explanation, with a very linear structure. (Here’s my main point; here’s the subpoints that support that point; here’s a review of the main point in conclusion). Your chapter on arranging for tension struck a chord with me, but I feel like I need some more examples of this being done. Do you have training videos online, or other resources you could point me toward that would help explain/expand this idea?

    Thanks for your faithfulness to preach God’s word, and to train other preachers of God’s word to do it more effectively!
