Are preachers still needed? George Buttrick's answers finally revealed.
Do we really need preaching? That’s a question that’s been asked for hundreds of years. The question hounded George Buttrick, one of the most profound preachers of the twentieth century. In George Buttrick’s Guide to Preaching the Gospel, we learn what Buttrick said about our need for competent preachers, what the preacher must preach about, and the daily discipline preachers should take when creating the sermon: research, charting, outlining, writing and performance. These previously unpublished essays will not only provide practical help in crafting sermons, they’ll will give modern preachers much-needed inspiration.
