Thomas G. Long is Bandy Professor of Preaching at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, and one of the most popular preachers in the United States today. He is the author of many books, including Accompany Them With SingingThe Christian Funeral and The Witness of Preaching.
"The only preaching textbook that I can imagine improving on The Witness of Preaching is this third edition, which updates the content for the next generation of preachers. It features an updated version of the biblical exegesis process that takes cutting-edge methodologies into account, a chapter on digital technology in relation to preaching, and a new section that features Long's analysis of the form of sermons by several of today's most accomplished pulpit communicators. The Witness of Preaching equips today's witnesses to preach compelling, coherent sermons to a new generation. It will take its place at the top of the required reading list as my mainstay 'go-to' textbook for my next preaching class!" Alyce M. McKenzie, Le Van Professor of Preaching and Worship, Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor, and Director of The Perkins Center for Preaching Excellence, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
