As a preacher of the gospel for 32 years and a pastor for 8 this is a book that I feel every preacher should read over and over no matter how long you have been in the ministry. It will help you stay on track thank God for Dr. John R.W. Stott. Read full review

Excellent easy yet straight-shooting read, along the lines of the great pastor-teachers i.e. Spurgeon, gives good outline for faith and conduct for any Christian. Solid information critical to my walk, will definately reread it several times. Read full review
