Michael Duduit, executive editor of Preaching Magazine, writes in the foreword that "the reader will find in this book a valuable discussion of what persuasion really is, what the Bible has to say about it, how it is modeled in the New Testament, and what role persuasion should and should not play in our own preaching in the twenty-first century. The author has provided solid biblical content and practical guidance that will be a powerful resource for preachers and church leaders. He writes with clarity and—dare I say it?—persuasive power. I hope you will be as blessed by this book as I have been."
“That preaching ought to persuade would seem self-evident. However, in a culture that sees any form of persuasion as arrogant, it may be that preachers have lost their nerve. Many retreat to a form of proclamation that seeks only to instruct and not to convict or to inspire. Overstreet intends to help us find a greater confidence. This thorough and detailed exploration of the Bible, makes a convincing case for a more persuasive preaching even in these under-confident times.” —Kenton C. Anderson, President, Northwest Baptist Seminary, Professor of Homiletics, ACTS Seminaries of Trinity Western University
