“God has appointed preaching in worship as one great means of accomplishing his ultimate goal in the world.” ―John Piper

John Piper makes a compelling claim in these pages about the purpose of preaching: it is intended not merely as an explanation of the text but also as a means of awakening worship by being worship in and of itself.

Inspiration This is the kind of book you stay – up reading. I tried several times only to find I stayed up too late. I have ordered several copies now for fellow pastors and church leaders. While nothing convicts, or changes you as the Word of God, once you finish reading this you will not be content to sit on the sidelines.
