Is Traditional Preaching Finished As We Know It?
This question seemed to be one of the premises behind a book I read recently, although I am uncertain as to the author’s final answer. Because I haven’t done a book review for a while I thought I would review this one which has been sat in my drafts box for a few months. In the course…
