Training Preachers presents the classroom-tested insights of several seasoned homiletics professors whose goal is to share their knowledge with preaching instructors ranging from novices to veterans. It enables those who teach preaching to holistically prepare to teach this subject to groups, conference gatherings, and classes in Bible colleges and seminaries.

Praise for Training Preachers

While there’s a plethora of books available to preachers and students of preaching, few have been written on the slippery subject of how to teach things related to this holy calling. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a seasoned preaching coach, Scott Gibson and his team of experienced homileticians have provided us with a treasure for our task. — Abraham Kuruvilla, Senior Research Professor of Preaching and Pastoral Ministries, Dallas Theological Seminary
