I'm Called to Preach Now What? Work Book
About the Book
“Dr. Aaron Chapman’s expressions on efficacious expository preaching is a masterpiece. It is a must read for aspiring expositors and for the tenured preacher. I am encouraged to keep pressing for a higher level in this calling because of this book” (Pastor C. L. Mayes; Macedonia Baptist Church, Toledo, Ohio; national evangelist). “A library ‘must have,’ is this soul-searching, conscious-pricking discourse of self examination of one’s calling and commitment to make full proof of their fervor towards the call to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Dr. Aaron Chapman’s masterpiece: I’m Called to Preach Now What? is an emphatic dissuading of preachers from becoming pirates plunderers and predators, of the sweet pain of another preacher’s production and performance. “If the passion to preach will effectively move from print to proclamation, one will fare well to embrace this theorem: Monday is Tuesday. Tuesday is Wednesday. Wednesday is Friday. Saturday is for meditation. And all of a sudden, it’s Sunday! Now what?” (Pastor Tellis Chapman; Galilee Baptist Church; NBC Late Night president). “Dr. Aaron Chapman offers us a practical and thorough format for beginning and continuing the development of sermons. Preachers everywhere can learn again how to do sermonizing. As a teacher of preaching and mentor to numerous preachers across generations, I’m particularly fascinated with Dr. Chapman’s freshness and creativity. I recommend this reading to anyone who wants to be challenged toward authenticity and integrity in sermon development and delivery. This work is anchored in the rich history of homiletics while sprouting dynamic images for creative and dynamic possibilities for the future of preaching. This book should be read again and again by those who preach in order to remain relevant and impactful” (E. L. Branch; Third New Hope Baptist Church, Detroit; homiletics professor, Ashland Seminary).
