Best Books on Preaching


Not only do I love preaching and listening to preachers, but I also love to read books about preaching.  There are tons of incredible preachers, leaders, and writers who have a lot of valuable insight about the craft of preaching and a lot of books have really helped me as I've spent time learning how to be a better communicator of God's word.  I've put together a list of some of my favorite books on preaching.  The books are a variety of styles ranging from the practical to theological in nature, but they all have had value for me as I've read and studied them.
