Learning to communicate God's Word in a way that captures people's attention and imparts principles for life change is quite an art. Even after years of hearing many excellent preachers and gaining much preaching experience myself in a variety of settings, I'm still learning. Here is a list of the most helpful books I've read:
- Communicating for a Change - by Andy Stanley
- Preaching with Purpose - by J.E. Adams
- Biblical Preaching - by Haddon Robison
- How to Speak so Youth Will Listen - by Ken Davis
Rick Warren also has an excellent course called ‘Preaching to Change Lives’ which is on CD or DVD with an accompanying manual.
