Biblical Preaching (2nd Edition) By Haddon W. Robinson
"Still the preaching primer of choice! No book offers a better walk-through of the process for preparing and delivering expository sermons."--Preaching
Haddon Robinson's Biblical Preaching has become a modern classic on the preparation and delivery of expository sermons. Much has changed, however, in twenty years and Robinson has undertaken the task of updating his work to benefit a new generation of preachers who will speak to a markedly different world.
While retaining the original outline of the book and Robinson's ten-stage process of sermon development, this new edition offers significant improvements. Many of the illustrations and arguments have been updated, the prose has been changed to gender-inclusive language, each chapter is enhanced with suggestions for further study, and the discussions of narrative and inductive preaching have been expanded.
Ryrie's Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine
By Charles Ryrie
In this concise and compelling handbook, respected evangelical theologian Charles Ryrie writes to Bible students and practicing pastors alike about the importance of communicating the doctrines of Scripture. Clearly, he explains why doctrinal truth from the Bible must be a key part of every preacher's message.
Using practical illustrations and applications, Ryrie addresses the reasons why so many people neglect doctrine and offers helpful ways of embracing doctrine through the use of major Bible passages, systematic theology, biblical theology, concordances, and more.
Seasoned pastor and educator, Jim Shaddix , presents pastors and listeners with a philosophical and theological argument for encountering God's voice with integrity during the weekly sermon event in the local church. The Passion-Driven Sermon gives special attention to theological subjects such as the nature of revelation, the role of persuasion and the effectual work of God's Word.
Also discussed are crucial areas such as the biblical foundation, philosophical framework, and practical implications for helping to shape individual listeners and congregations into the image of Jesus Christ. The author addresses numerous neglected subjects such as the purpose of the Bible, the unique roles of the pastoral preacher and his listeners, and the responsibility of preaching and listening for community development.

Brothers, We are not Professional A Plea to Pastors for Radical Ministry
By John Piper
In Brothers, We are Not Professionals, author and pastor John Piper pleas with his colleagues to abandon the secularization of the pastorate and return to the primitive call of the Bible for radical ministry.
Piper maintains that pastors are being killed by the professionalizing of the pastoral ministry. The mentality of the professional is not the mentality of the prophet. It is not the mentality of the slave of Christ. Professionalism has nothing to do with the essence and heart of Christian ministry. The more professional pastors long to be, the more spiritual death they may be subject to. Professionalism is often at odds with childlikeness, tenderheartedness, and panting after God. The world sets the agenda of the professional man; God sets the agenda of the spiritual man. The strong wine of Jesus Christ explodes the wineskins of professionalism.
