About the Author:

Warren Lathem has preached for 36 years in 10 different countries in a wide variety of settings, ranging from tiny rural churches to mega churches, as well as revivals, campmeetings and area-wide crusades. After serving as Senior Minister of Mount Pisgah UMC in Alpharetta, he became the District Superintendent of the 42,000-member Atlanta Marietta District. He also is the founding president of the Seminario Wesleyano de Venezuela. He co-founded the Aslan Group, a resource team for local churches. Dan W. Dunn has served Christ in local United Methodist churches for 25 years, including a small-membership rural congregation, a large county seat congregation and a mega-church. Additionally, he enjoyed five years as a mission pastor, as he shared God's Word in Nepal, Venezuela, Costa Rica, South Africa and other countries. He is currently engaged in in-depth research related to evangelization of Hispanic pre-Christians in America.


The laser-sharp focus of Preaching for a Response is profound and yet simple. Warren Lathem and Dan Dunn intentionally speak in plain language. They believe hearing is not enough. Authentic transformation mandates that pew persons must also comprehend, understand and respond. However, this helpful and very practical gem moves far beyond one more fill-the pew formula. Here is a passionate, articulate apologetic by two seasoned pulpit warriors that cuts to the core of fruitful preaching. It is, Do what Jesus did! Offer the transformational Word and open the door for response. Speak the gospel with a concerted, clear, intentional opportunity for hearers of the Word to become responders to the Word. The message in this volume is not about being slick. It is about the difference between life and death. The difference is Preaching for a Response. Lathem and Dunn are practical. They maintain that every pastor can learn to preach for a response. Every pastor can begin now. A bonus of six illustrative sermons is included in the bargain. For sure, this power volume will become required reading for my students. --Dr. William C. Goold, Dwight M. and Lucille S. Beesoin Professor of Church Music, William Earle Edwards Professor of Church Music Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky

I know first hand the effects of Dr. Lathem's preaching. Almost 30 years ago, during the darkest time in my life, his ministry was a key element which led me back into a relationship with Jesus Christ. As I read the book my heart danced at the harvest God will bring as a result of the implementation of what is shared in Preaching for a Response. --Beverly Varnado, Freelance Writer

I am pleased to recommend Preaching for a Response, by Warren Lathem and Dan Dunn. These men know how to lead a church in making disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformartion of the world. A key to disciple-making is preaching with every expectation that people will respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit. --Bishop G. Lindsey Davis, North Georgia Conference, United Methodist Church
