The New Interpreter’s Handbook of Preaching (Abingdon) is an outstanding collection of articles about various elements of the preaching task. In addition to essays on various biblical and theological themes (and the relationship of preaching to those issues), the Handbook also includes helpful articles on an array of homiletical subjects, from Application to Preaching Without Notes.
The New Interpreter’s Handbook of Preaching (Abingdon) is an excellent new resource containing more than 200 articles on topics ranging from hermeneutical issues to components of the sermon. Contributors represent a wide range of denominational and theological perspectives, and the editors should be congratulated for intentionally including an assortment of evangelical voices. (By way of disclosure: I wrote three of the entries, but don’t let that discourage you.) This is likely to be one of those significant tools you’ll keep using for years to come.
