The Weight of Preaching



UPDATE (5/6/13): The ebook is now available at Christian Book Distributors

UPDATE: My first book is now available on Amazon.com: The Weight of Preaching: Heralding the Gospel of Grace (Hardcover and Paperback available).  

I am truly humbled and honored that some of my heroes were gracious enough to offer endorsements for it.  To God be the glory.

“Amid shelves full of how-to books about preaching, Rick Harrington’s book stands out in its consideration of the fundamental why and what of preaching. His theme of the preacher as herald is worthy of much meditation, for it casts the preacher’s authority, message, person, and effectiveness under the shadow of the gracious King. It is a refreshing and reinvigorating word to the messengers of the Lord.”

“Rick Harrington has written an insightful book on preaching that is unified around the theme of the preacher as herald and preaching as heralding.  Intended as a complement to (not a replacement for) homiletical textbooks, this is a welcome addition to our understanding of the theology of preaching.  I heartily recommend it to all who care about the church or about preaching.”

“Effective preachers should read at least one new book on preaching every year.  If that is your custom then by all means read "The Weight of Preaching" this year.”
