This Study Guide provides an introduction to the practice of preaching. It is designed for people from various church traditions, in the early stages of ministerial formation.

Preaching is a complex and challenging business requiring a demanding mixture of skills. People listening to a sermon have the right to expect that a person who stands up to preach, can interpret the Bible competently, has a grasp of core Christian beliefs, and believes what they preach. They also expect someone who has the necessary range of communication skills to put the message across in an accessible way. Such a range of expectations presents daunting challenges to the most experienced preacher.

Preaching includes practical exercises which could be used by individuals or by groups. The book is suitable for introductory courses in preaching or for modules which consider preaching within an overall focus upon leading public worship.
