Seasoned advice for pastors facing the weekly challenge of preparing sermons

For pastors, a new sermon comes every week. Conventional wisdom says that pastors need to sequester themselves to prepare their weekly sermon without distraction. But veteran preacher Frank Honeycutt suggests just the opposite: prepare your sermons as part of a daily, lived experience in the community.

Using the days of the week as a framework, Honeycutt describes practical and essential tasks leading up to the writing and delivery of the Sunday sermon—habits that will provide lasting spiritual nourishment for pastors who plan for a long career in parish ministry. With humor and candid acknowledgment of his own mistakes and doubts, Honeycutt reflects on the joys and hazards of ministry and explains how a faithful process of preaching shapes pastors for a lifetime of healthy ministry.

"This book is striped page by page with wisdom. Buy it, read it, learn from it."
Scot McKnight
“Honeycutt never boils down the rich brew of the Bible so that it will pour neatly into the tiny thimbles of our world-weary, domesticated, and impoverished religious imaginations. Instead, in his hands, the Bible makes us larger. . . . Frank Honeycutt has pastoral imagination—and for this we can all be grateful.”
