Crossway Preaching Bundle

Crossway Preaching Bundle This week, we are pleased to announce a new release for Accordance, the Crossway Preaching Bundle. There are numerous helpful books for pastors available, but this particular group of titles is set apart by the extensive ministry experience of the writers of these books. These books not only offer means to better preaching; they also offer experience-based methods for better pastoring. This collection draws from historical pastors, career-long practical wisdom, and proven communication methods.


Faithful Preacher_120 The Faithful Preacher: Recapturing the Vision of Three Pioneering African-American Pastors
y Thabiti M. Anyabwile

Thabititi Abyabwile, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands compiled the biographies and writings of three influential African-American pastors in American history. Lemuel Haynes (1753-1833) reminds pastors that eternity must shape our ministry. Daniel A. Payne (1811-1893) stresses the importance of character and preparation to faithful shepherding. And Francis J. Grimké (1850-1937) provides a vision for engaging the world with the gospel. While they are from the African-American tradition, they, like all true saints, belong to all Christians of every background and era. Distinctive for its use of rare and out-of-print messages, Anaybwile's work is valuable as a reference as well as a devotional resource.

Practical Wisdom_120 Practical Wisdom for Pastors: Words of Encouragement and Counsel for a Lifetime of Ministry
--By Curtis C. Thomas

This is the book that every pastor should receive at the beginning a career and calling. Before he retired, Curtis C. Thomas pastored numerous churches in central Arkansas. Now he shares from 44 years of his experience in hopes of helping pastors who are still in the trenches of ministry. This is a frank, no-holds-barred look at pastoral life. Some of the events recounted here are tragic, but some will make you laugh out loud. Written as a series of short articles, Practical Wisdom for Pastors begins with an exploration of a pastor’s initial call to ministry and ends with the dangers of a church that develops tunnel vision. This practical guide for ministry can be consulted as a handbook or worked through on a systematic basis like a book of daily readings.

Using Illustrations_120 Using Illustrations to Preach with Power
--By Bryan Chapell

Supposedly, the well-known assumption goes that everyone will remember a pastor’s stories and illustrations, but no one remembers the main points of the sermon. But is this true; and if it is, why is it so? Are clever stories in a sermon merely points of entertainment to get us thinking, or can they be used for greater purpose? Is it possible, perhaps, that a sermon that employs illustrations properly will allow church members to remember not only the stories but the main points of the sermon as well? There are plenty of books that include sermon illustrations. This is not that kind of book. In Using Illustrations to Preach with Power, Chapell goes beyond the illustrations themselves to delve into their theory and philosophy—why some work well and others don’t. This is a must-have book for every preacher who wants to leave church members with messages they will truly remember.
