    Preaching as Reminding

    Stirring Memory in an Age of Forgetfulness

    by Jeffrey D. Arthurs
    Foreword by John Ortberg

    We know of the preacher’s roles as both teacher and proclaimer, but Jeffrey Arthurs adds another assignment: the Lord’s remembrancer. With decades of preaching experience, he explains how to stir the memory of Christ-followers, fanning the flames of faith through vivid language, story, delivery, and ceremony. When knowledge fades and conviction cools, the church needs to be reminded of the great truths of the faith.
