Fire In Your Pulpit by Robert G Delnay
Fire in Your Pulpit was what I expected after reading the title. The author addresses common issues in preaching and the recurring setbacks found among preachers. He deals with topics such as sermon planning, preparation, and execution. He sincerely attempts to restore the place of preaching to it's rightful place of the prophet's proclamation of "Thus saith the Lord." The chapters are rather short so the reading is quick.
The author does an accurate job of explaining how to continue the preaching found in fundamental circles in the past century. He explains the need for the preacher to be organized, fluent and precise. He also deals with several different sermon types, but focuses on the "exegetical" sermon.
I was not too impressed with this book as I read it. The other preaching books which I have read have far surpassed this one in many areas.
His section on invitations was frustrating. I found his concept of an exegetical sermon to be a little weaker than others I have read (Chapell, etc)
Overall, it was an average book. I would recommend Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon by Chapell instead.
