Dr. Joe H. Cothen, who first taught how to be a pastor in Equipped for Good Work: A Guide for Pastors, now teaches how to preach--a task which lies at the very core of a pastor's work.
From the Inside Flap:
In his book Equipped for Good Work: A Guide for Pastors, Dr. Joe H. Cothen taught how to be a pastor. Now he addresses preaching and reminds the pastor that preaching is at the center of what he does.
Effective preachers vary the styles of their sermons in order to continually connect with the members of their congregation and to spread the Good News. Consistently negative fire-and-brimstone sermons would quickly lose their impact, and the listeners would lose interest.
Those perhaps most likely to lose interest are the teenage attendees. For the pastor, teenagers prove to be a particularly elusive and fickle audience; after all, they do know everything.
What teenagers need to know, however, are the lessons to be learned from the Bible. Chapter 12, "The Pulpit Is Waiting for the Man Who Can Speak to the Needs of Youth," addresses the needs and concerns of teenagers with several sermons that follow the "It Could Happen to You . . ." format. The sermons address running with the wrong crowd, dating carefully, and maintaining control.
Other chapters address the congregation as a whole and deal with such subjects as the Bible, evangelism, and discipleship.
In addition to the text, the pastor will also benefit from the helpful appendixes, including: "Used Book Dealers in Theology and Religion: U.S."; "Preaching Units from Ephesians"; and "Course of Sermons from the Life of Christ." Also helpful are the lists of various supplementary materials.
With the help of this book, the pastor will always be prepared to preach, and preach he must, because the pulpit is waiting.
