About the Author:

John C. Holbert is the Lois Craddock Perkins Professor of Homiletics at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas. He is the author of several books and articles on preaching.

Alyce M. McKenzie is Professor of Homiletics at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, in Dallas, Texas. She is the author of several books, including The Parables for Today, Preaching Proverbs: Wisdom for the Pulpit, and Novel Preaching.

Review:

"Alyce McKenzie and John Holbert have drawn on their years of experience teaching the art of preaching and have created a book that is not only smart and full of practical wisdom, it is also witty and a delight to read. Their lists of 'things not to do' and 'things to do' in sermons are so down-to-earth and practical, one almost forgets how deeply rooted they are in good theology and solid homiletical theory." Thomas G. Long, Professor of Preaching, Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA
