Letting the Text Win is intentionally designed to help the new and inexperienced preacher capture a methodology in sermon-making, as well as discover a theology of preaching that he can build on for a lifetime. Veteran preachers will also discover an encouraging reminder of the size and scope of this great undertaking. Letting the Text Win will be a refresher course for all who proclaim the Word of God.

Few things are as impactful as when the church gathers in the name of God to hear the preaching of the Word of God, to retell the story of the love of God . . . and to leave dumbfounded by the mystery of God as they go out to do His will in the world en route to the new creation of God.” – MARK SCOTT

"We don't need more creative preachers or eloquent preachers...We need preachers who will begin in the text, pray in the text, live in the text, and speak the text into our context.  This book will help us in our journey to become these kinds of preachers-- preachers who let the text win!"  -  From the foreword by Mike Baker

Letting the Text Win has 11 chapters and 190 pages

ISBN 978-0-89900-495-2
