Seventy-five years ago, renowned preacher Harry Emerson Fosdick asked in Harper's Magazine, "what's the matter with preaching?" Fosdick's question is even more relevant today, as both pastors and laity acknowledge the need for improvement in Sunday morning's sermons. And who better for pastors and students to learn from than those who already do it well? The contributors to this book are a some of the best and most thoughtful preachers in the church and classroom today. In their essays, they assess the state of preaching today, identify a variety of issues that challenge effective preaching, and offer helpful suggestions for what can be done to improve preaching. In the process, they help to define what effective preaching is.

Mike Graves is William K. McElvaney Visiting Professor of Preaching and Director of Continuing Education and the Saint Paul Institute at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. He is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
