Product Description

In this book, scholar and preacher Cleophus J. LaRue brings together the voices of twelve of America''s most influential African-American preachers. Each of these renowned preachers describes his or her method of sermon preparation and includes a sample sermon for illustration. An excellent how-to manual for pastors and students, Power in the Pulpit is both sage wisdom on the art of preaching and an inspiring look at some of the most prominent figures in the black church.

He is the author of The Heart of Black Preaching and the editor of Power in the Pulpit: How America''s Most Effective Black Preachers Prepare Their Sermons, both available from WJK.

Great Manual for the Preacher or Aspiring Preacher
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2016
I was assigned to do a book report on this book as preparation for my doctorate. This is a great book that gives good information about how ministers prepare their sermons. The list of twelve ministers from different backgrounds, genders, and denomination is a plus as well.

Dr. LaRue was a professor at seminary while I was there. I heard him preach but unfortunately never wound up in any of his classes. This is a fabulous book---as I am ''white'' and come from a ''white church background'' (whatever that means) it was helpful to me in the diverse setting I find myself in as a resource to improve my own preaching--to help me think about rhythm and style and repetition.

I have read fifteen books on preaching in the first six months of 2005. Having read them, if I could choose just one that helped me most as a preacher, it is this text. We hear from some of the best Black preachers in America - how they preach and a sample sermon of each. You sit at the feet of masters.

I am a minister - white - who gained tremendously from these giants in our pulpits.

GET IT. These old time preachers knew God, knew what He wanted of them, and did it. The results? Powerful preaching that comes from being in front of the throne of God. As one old preacher once said when asked about how to prepare to give a message on Sunday, he replied: "Get into the presence of God, wait before Him, see what He shows you, and then tell them what you saw."
